Sliding-scale Tuition

Areté’s sliding-scale tuition policy provides equitable access to our highly personalized, student-centered model, while supporting top-notch faculty, tiny class sizes, and cutting-edge tools and facilities. FAST, our third-party financial assessment software, helps us set a customized tuition based on a family’s income and allowed expenses, with a maximum contribution of $49,500 for 2020-21.

In addition, the school offers a limited number of merit scholarships, a tuition loan program, and several payment plans.
