How much does it cost?

We believe every family should be able to access a high quality private education if they think it is best for their child. 
Tuition is based on a family’s ability to pay. 
Tuition is charged on a sliding scale according to each family’s income and financial situation. Financial assistance is awarded by Charleston Classical School  if a student meets the criteria for admittance and family need is demonstrated through the our third party provider TADS Financial Aid. Recipients of financial assistance must apply each year. 

To be considered for financial assistance, families complete the TADS Financial Aid application form along with submitting required income disclosure documents.
For example, our actual-cost tuition is $10,000, yet a family whose yearly income is $20,000 could expect to pay approximately $500 tuition over 10 months for their child. 

What grades do you have?

For Fall 2023, we will serve kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders.
Charleston Classical School plans to add the next grade each subsequent school year.
