Tuition and Fees

The Fenn School recognizes the importance of a diverse community; families should not hesitate to apply because of financial circumstances. Tuition Assistance / Financial Aid is available solely on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Requests for financial aid are made at the time of application. Fenn's NAIS SSS school code is 3136Please contact Tory Hayes '02, Interim Director of Admission and Financial Aid, for inquiries regarding application fee assistance.


To reserve a spot at Fenn, each student’s deposit is due on or before April 10. We offer three payment plans to help match a family’s financial situation:

Option 1: Tuition may be paid in full on before July 1.

Option 2: Two payments, with 50% due on or before July 1, and 50% due on or before October 1.

Option 3: Ten equal monthly installments from May 1 to February 1.

All payment methods are managed via SMART Tuition.


The Fenn enrollment agreement covers the entire school year. The fact that school fees are paid in installments does not constitute a fractional contract. If, subsequent to July 1 of any year, a student is absent, withdrawn, or dismissed from the school, the obligation to pay the tuition continues as though the student were in fact still enrolled for the entire year.

In view of this unconditional obligation, the Tuition Refund Plan is offered to parents. This plan insures fees (prepaid and due) in the event of absence or separation according to the terms of the policy. The Tuition Refund Plan is strongly recommended for all families. Please contact David Platt, Assistant Headmaster for Finance and Operations, with any questions.
