Financial Aid

Orchard School is a nonprofit and relies solely on tuition and fundraising efforts for its yearly operating budget. In an effort to be inclusive and have a diverse population, we provide a limited number of need-based tuition adjustments for our K-6 families.

Financial aid calculations are made by an independent organization, Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST). All financial aid applications and family data are completely confidential. The link to FAST information for Orchard School and applications can be found by clicking here.
