Affordable Tuition

Scattergood has a long history of providing a strong and affordable education to students from around the globe. Thanks to generous donors, we have been able to remain one of the most affordable boarding schools in the nation, while still offering the same high quality, well-rounded Quaker education.

Tuition is set based on a family's demonstrated need, and many families qualify for reduced tuition on our sliding scale. Over 65 percent of students qualify for reduced tuition, and over half qualify for minimum tuition. We understand that each situation is different and do our best to assist families.
