Tuition & Assistance

Sussex School's tuition is designed to fund high level educational and program opportunities, hire and retain talented faculty and staff, and maintain a campus that will enhance the experience of all learners. Our hope is to provide as many families as possible the opportunity to experience the Sussex program and the benefits provided to its students as they prepare for the global community and collegiate campus.


Sussex depends primarily on families paying a fair tuition. While this tuition provides so much for the school and students, we hope it also will not hinder opportunities; therefore, we work closely with each applicant to provide tuition assistance awards that enable them to attend Sussex.
