Affording a Seven Hills Education

At Seven Hills, we recognize that an independent school education requires a significant financial commitment from families—and in turn, it’s our commitment to help them afford it.

We believe that students learn best when they’re surrounded by people from a variety of different economic, cultural, and geographic backgrounds. That’s why we strive to assist as many families as possible who may not be able to afford the school’s full tuition. In a typical year, Seven Hills awards financial assistance to about 35% of the student body.

Two Payment Plan options

In addition to offering the option to make payment in full up front, we also offer two Tuition Payment Plans.

  1. Tuition Payment Plan A:

    Tuition is billed in two installments , one in July and one in December, with payments due by July 31 and December 31.

  2. Tuition Payment Plan B:

    Tuition is billed in 10 equal installments, July-April. There is a one-time annual service charge of $125.00 per child, per all day tuition, or $70 per child, per half day tuition.

Two types of needs. Two ways to get assistance.

The Seven Hills School offers two tuition assistance options to meet the needs of our families:

  1. Need-based financial aid

    Available to families of currently enrolled or newly accepted students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 who demonstrate financial need. Financial aid is not available for the pre-kindergarten for 2-year-old program. 

    Please note many financial aid awards are less than or equal to 50% of the annual tuition, but this varies based on the entering grade level, space availability, number of applicants, and the availability of budgeted funds. Pre-kindergarten awards (available for full day only) typically do not exceed 25% of the annual tuition. Financial aid is not available for the pre-kindergarten for 2-year-olds program.

  2. Seven Hills Scholar Awards

    Available for new applicants entering grades one through 12, this assistance is awarded based on merit, without consideration of financial need. When granting these awards, we consider the strength of the admission application and look for students who demonstrate extraordinary academic achievement, potential strength of character, and the capacity to make a significant impact on the Seven Hills community.
