Participation in a JV or Varsity sport does involve additional costs, principally for practice gear, equipment (if applicable), pre- or post-game meals, photographs, and awards banquet. These fees range from approximately $100 to $700 per sport depending on the number of competitions and the amount of required personal gear.
Certain clubs such as National Honor Society, Student Council, D-Groups, Debate Club, Thespian Society, or Robotics may assess minimal dues (typically $20-$25) to cover the cost of meals and sponsored activities.
Cheerleaders, dancers, drill team members, and theatrical performers will incur costs for costumes, makeup, shoes, and possibly summer camp (if applicable). These costs range from approximately $250 to $1,000.
Participants in band, choir and orchestra must purchase performance attire from the School prior to the first concert performance. This cost ranges from $150-$400. Additionally, the cast and crew of the Spring musical performance may be assessed additional fees to cover the cost of meals and transportation during late rehearsals at the performance venue.
The School offers several national and international trips through its “Beyond These Walls” global awareness programs. These trips are optional. The cost of these trips is not included in tuition and can range from $1,200 to $6,000. Required curricular and co-curricular field trips are generally included in, or significantly subsidized by, tuition and fees.
All students are required to purchase textbooks, calculators, and other supplies adopted by the School. The cost of textbooks will vary by grade and subject depending on the teachers’ choices and the availability of used textbooks. The cost per student for textbooks ranges annually from approximately $350-$750. The calculator is a one-time required purchase of $150.
