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.
Tuition varies by grade and on tuition assistance.
Full kindergarten: $13,204
Full first-fourth grades: $13,440
Full fifth-eighth grades: $13,674
23-24 Tuition rates will be announced in February
Tuition assistance and scholarships can help
reduce tuition costs up to 75%.
Please call Lisa Whitcomb at 406.549.8327
to learn more about tuition costs.
We realize that a Sussex education is a significant investment.
Each year we award over $125,000 in tuition assistance to qualifying families.
Awards range from 5-75% of full tuition and can be paired with scholarships.
Tuition assistance applications are due February 17, 2023.
If you miss the deadline please inquire as assistance may still be available after the deadline.
