Tuition and Fees

Tuition for the 2024-25 school year is $57,600.
The cost of books, a laptop fee, and other incidentals is approximately $1,000 - $1,500 per school year. These fees are billed separately from tuition.
Newly enrolled students at College Prep are required to submit an enrollment deposit of approximately 11% of the next school year’s tuition. Students admitted with financial aid pay an enrollment deposit of approximately 11% of their balance due after their financial aid award is deducted from full tuition. 
College Prep partners with FACTS to offer families a choice of three different payment plans to pay the balance of tuition due:
  • One Payment Plan: Balance of school’s tuition due in May
  • Three Payment Plan: Balance of school tuition paid over three equal installments in May, August, and November
  • Eight Payment Plan: Balance of school tuition paid over eight equal monthly installments from May through December 
As College Prep must commit itself to faculty, staff, and facilities costs for a full year, enrollment of a student obligates the parent or guardian for a full year's tuition regardless of any reason for withdrawal or dismissal at any time during the school year. Tuition insurance is available and recommended.

As is the case with most independent schools, tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of educating each student at College Prep. The school relies on voluntary contributions to the College Prep Annual Fund from members of our community to provide critical support for educational initiatives that tuition alone does not cover. These tax-deductible gifts allow all students to benefit from the small classes, robust co-curricular offerings, and individual attention that highlight the College Prep experience. For more information about the College Prep Annual Fund and other ways to support College Prep, please visit
