Tuition, Fees, and Financial Assistance


Tuition for the academic year September 2023 to June 2024 is $79,895.

Tuition covers the cost of all books and materials, as well as all expenses related to school-wide field trips and special events. Beginning in the 2023-2024 academic year, a nutritious and delicious hot lunch will be provided for all students. We are proud to share the news of this new initiative as it genuinely exemplifies both our Board of Trustees’ and our school’s dedication to the quality of the school experience and to ensuring equity for all families and students.

Application Fee

A non-refundable application fee of $150.00 must accompany your application. For families applying for financial assistance, the application fee is $35.00.

Financial Assistance

Our financial aid program is designed to make Stephen Gaynor School accessible to all families. Assistance is provided for tuition as well as auxiliary programs like afterschool and summer camp. Trips and other ancillary activities are considered as well. We strongly encourage all interested families to apply for financial assistance; aid is available to students at all age levels. Awards are granted to students on the basis of need and availability of funds. Awards are granted for one year at a time and must be applied for annually. We work with School and Student Services for Financial Aid, an organization that works with many of New York City’s independent schools.


Check the appropriate box on the application form.

You will then be contacted by a representative from the Admissions Office, who will assist you in completing the remaining steps to apply for financial assistance.

Please note that you do not need to fill out all of the financial assistance forms until your child’s application has been read by the Stephen Gaynor School Admissions Office. The Admissions Office will contact you to begin the financial assistance application process.

An applicant’s need for financial assistance does not affect admissions eligibility.
