2018-2019 Tuition & Fees

TGS tuition ranges from $30,000-48,000, with an average tuition of $38,000. Individual tuition depends on the level of student support needs, which are determined in collaboration with families during the admissions process.

There is a $500 application fee due with the application materials. This fee is non-refundable, and represents a portion of the staff time devoted to scoring assessments, reviewing records, observing student visitations and evaluating the student’s potential fit within the TGS community.

A $2,500 deposit is due at the time of enrollment, and will be credited toward the student’s total tuition amount. Returning families who complete the enrollment process by the priority enrollment deadline will receive a $500 early enrollment discount.

The balance of the tuition, or the first scheduled tuition payment, is due on or before August 1, prior to the start of each academic year. Monthly or semi-annual payment plans may be set up through the FACTS Tuition Management service.

Incidental fees not included in tuition (for Plus One courses, field trips, materials, etc.) will be billed through FACTS as they are incurred.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for both current and new families. To help us objectively assess what a family is financially able to contribute, TGS employs the FACTS system to determine eligibility for financial aid.

TGS uses FACTS calculations as a baseline, taking into consideration our total financial aid budget and the needs of our entire applicant pool. If your family has extenuating circumstances that won’t be reflected in the standard FACTS calculation, please provide us with a letter describing the circumstances and include copies of any documentation available.

Financial aid awards are determined by the Tuition Assistance committee, and awarded at the discretion of the Office of Admission. All awards are based on a student’s demonstrated need, motivation for learning, and potential for active participation in the TGS community.
