Tuition & Affordability

A North Shore education is distinguished by personal connections; participation in the arts, athletics and service learning; and an engaging curriculum with a global focus. This requires an educational investment. Our graduates, parents and current students know it is a gift of a lifetime that provides priceless and life-changing returns. For those families who can not afford the full cost of tuition, our need-based Financial Aid Program was established to ensure access and opportunity to families from a range of socio-economic backgrounds.
