Tuition for the 2016-2017 academic year is $59,040 for the Lower School and $60,595 for the Middle School.
This is a comprehensive fee and includes the cost of all educational supplies, school trips, and activities. It does not cover after-school programming.
Gateway offers financial aid to new and returning families in the form of scholarship awards, payment plans, and loans. The school makes every effort to ensure that aid is available and awards it to families based on need. Interested families are encouraged to apply. Scholarships are offered to the families of students throughout the school.
New Families: The need for assistance does not affect admissions decisions. Scholarship awards are made only after a student is admitted. Financial files are reviewed and the families of accepted students are notified in April and May.
To start the process of applying for a scholarship, simply check the financial aid box on the admissions application to indicate interest in financial aid. A representative from the Admissions Team will call to discuss the next steps. Any family seeking a scholarship must submit its financial information to FACTS Management. FACTS will provide Gateway with its analysis of a family’s ability to pay for education and assist Gateway in determining the appropriate amount to award. Since a family’s circumstances can change, every interested family must apply for a scholarship annually.
Payment plans and loans administered by Your Tuition Solution are other forms of financial assistance available to families. The Admissions Team includes the application forms for these services when it issues enrollment contracts.
Current Families: Families seeking assistance for returning students must submit an application to FACTS Management—and then notify the Gateway Business Office that they have done so—by December 16, 2016 to be eligible for scholarship consideration for the 2017-2018 school year.
Notification: Like the families of newly admitted students, the families of returning students are notified of financial aid decisions in April and May.
