Payment Options

Brown School currently offers three tuition payment options elected on each student’s enrollment contract:

  • Payment in full by August 31st
  • Six payments due the 15th day of the month in August, September, October, November, December, and January
  • Ten payments due on the fifteenth day of the month beginning in August and ending in May

Families also have the option of billing their account to pay for various Brown School fundraisers and events. 

All late payments must be accompanied by a $35.00 late fee.

Financial Assistance

All students may be eligible for financial assistance awards up to 50% of their Cost of Attendance.

To apply for assistance, parents must complete the TADS application on-line via the TADS website (

TADS independently compiles, evaluates and recommends financial assistance awards. Based upon the independent report provided by TADS, Brown School’s Financial Assistance Committee will determine a family’s eligibility and the amount of each grant.

Annual Income Tax Returns (Federal form 1040) are provided to TADs as part of the Financial Aid application, and an application is deemed complete when all requested documents are provided.

Applications for returning students must be submitted between January 1 and mid-February for September enrollment. The Brown School Financial Aid Committee reviews and determines each award based on need-based aid guidelines. Awards are granted in March. Families receiving a Financial Aid Award letter must accept the award within 10 days or forfeit the award.

Awards for new families may be submitted as above, but may include requests for aid after the March award cycle is completed. Please note that there is a limit on aid, and aid is administered on a first-come-first served basis. Aid may be reduced or denied if a request is made too late in the admissions cycle, as funds may no longer be available.

Sibling Discount

Families with more than one child attending Brown School receive a 10% discount on tuition for the younger sibling(s).

About Brown School

The Brown School community is strong and supportive, and we believe that our students deserve not only an academic education but also a place to enjoy traditions and experiences that they cherish for years to come. Our faculty and administration are committed to mindfully educating each individual student in a nurturing and collaborative environment.

Our School Day

Our school song states that “Brown School is joy, friendship, and laughter. Memories dear, now and long after. Working each day, growing together. Brown School is learning and love.” Even though we have modernized our teaching and offerings, these words hold true even decades after they were written.

Beyond the School Day

Brown School students of all ages have a plethora of options available after the school day is over. Whether it is partaking in the after school or Plus programs that offer a purposeful place for students while parents are working, exploring new interests or established hobbies, or getting together beyond the walls of our school, our Brown School community is strong.
