Tuition and fees

Family Individualized Tuition, 2022-2023

Every family at Gordon receives their own FIT price based on their individual economic profile. The process of determining their price begins when they log into the FIT portal and submit a family financial overview to the school.

Families that choose to invest in Gordon at the maximum FIT price must indicate this by also logging into the FIT portal; these families are not required to submit a family financial overview.

After school care for Gordon students

Gordon offers after school care for all students, from dismissal to 5:30pm, every day that school is in session.

After school care pricing has been seriously impacted by the need for COVID precautions.

During the 2021-2022 school year, for example, daily care from 3:30pm to 5:30pm is $3,000 for the full year in Early Childhood and Lower School. Before COVID, the cost would have been 15% to 33% less expensive, depending on the child's age.

Middle School care in general is significantly less expensive: it was $900 for a full year of daily care pre-COVID, and it is on track to be $975 this year.

As the need for COVID precautions changes, we expect the price will get closer to the lower, pre-COVID rates.

Music lessons
Individual instruction, per trimester
Instructional tennis
Fall or winter season
$240 per season

A number of after school programs, including Middle School athletics, Tuesday Common Ground and plays and musicals, are supported by the school’s operating budget. There is no additional charge for families participating in these programs. 

Care before school is also available, beginning at 7:15am, at no charge.
