Facts Tuition Management
The Clapham School policy on tuition differs from most other schools in a number of respects.
Class sizes are limited to 16 students per class, so the student to teacher ratio compares favorably to most other day school options. The benefit from smaller class sizes cannot be underestimated. We invite prospective parents to schedule times to come observe for themselves the difference this makes in the lives of Clapham School students.
Our educational model is focused on creating a challenging, yet nurturing classroom environment. Therefore, we put priority on funding faculty training and compensation and providing high-quality learning materials and experiences for Clapham School students.
Clapham School is committed to remaining accessible. Tuition assistance is budgeted as part of our operational expenses for those families that need some financial help in providing a Clapham education for their children. We strongly encourage interested families to apply for tuition assistance in the form of need-based aid.
