TUITION AND SCHEDULE OF FEES
In an effort to make the Darrow educational experience affordable to as many families as possible, we offer Variable Tuition. Variable Tuition allows Darrow to match the annual cost of education with a family’s financial ability. More than 40% of our families take advantage of this program, paying tuition that is scaled to their resources.
In order to determine a family’s ability to pay, we work with the School and Student Service by NAIS to understand a family’s income and expenses. See Darrow’s Financial Aid Policy for more details, filing information, and important dates.
We also offer payment plans through SMART Tuition. Any family who is not paying a one-time payment must register with SMART Tuition
