Tuition & Affordability

No one should fail to apply to Burroughs on the basis of financial need. Every year more than an entire grade level of our students receive some form of loans, grants or a package of loans and grants. In the 2021-2022 school year, approximately 25 percent of our students have collectively been awarded $3,790,000.

Tuition for the 2021-2022 school year is $31,250. Other charges, for books, supplemental classroom materials and field trips, can cost an additional $1,000 a year.

Our admission decisions are made prior to, and separate from, decisions concerning tuition aid. Tuition aid forms for current families and grade 9 applicants are due January 4. Grade 7 applicants should apply for aid by February 8. Once a student has been accepted, we make every effort to meet their tuition needs, but please do not wait until Spring to apply.

Our policies and process are set forth below. Please do not hesitate to contact Caroline LaVigne with any questions. This process is confidential.
