At the Carden Country School, we strive to keep tuition very affordable, and we are almost always one of the most affordable non-public options in our area.  For the 2022-23 school year, total cost will be approximately $13,500-$14,000 depending on grade level and payment plan selected.    

We understand that private school is an added and significant expense for most families, but years of Carden parents testify to its value.  We ask for a spring deposit, a late summer curriculum and supplies fee, and offer an early payment discount.  Payments may be made over 10 months per the table below.  We have a very few, very limited, financial aid grants available.
