AFFORDING PRIVATE SCHOOL
At TCPS we recognize the decision to attend an independent private school represents a significant and important investment in your child’s education. Independent schools such as TCPS can offer a unique academic experience of small classes and attention from teachers and staff that is highly sought after, but difficult to provide in a larger school environment. We appreciate your interest in TCPS and strive to assist as many families as possible to make this an affordable choice.
Financial Assistance is Available
Financial assistance is available on a sliding scale for those who qualify. Financial assistance decisions are made by our Admissions Committee with guidance by a third party advisor who administers the application. Please see our Tuition and Financial Assistance page here for important deadlines and information regarding the application process.

TCPS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, age, gender, or sexual orientation in administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid, hiring, and other school-administered programs.
