Tuition and Financial Aid
Since our founding, we have been dedicated to increasing access and welcoming as many qualified students as possible. Our need-based financial aid program empowers us to attract strong applicants from a wide range of backgrounds and to compose a well-rounded and talented student body. To that end, we are committed to partnering with families to meet the cost of a Commonwealth education.
