Tuition and Financial Support
One of our founding tenets is that no student should be refused entrance to High Mowing School based solely on financial concerns. To make HMS education accessible to as many students as possible, we offer high school scholarship opportunities as well as a generous need-based financial aid program.

Affordability - Our Aim

High Mowing’s tuition levels compare favorably with other independent schools in New England. Yet for many families, the cost of a private education can seem daunting. High Mowing School has a long-standing tradition of generosity initiated by its founder and perpetuated by donations from current parents, alumni, and friends of the school. Socio-economic diversity is a long-time value of our school, illustrated by our average tuition levels.

Average Paid Tuition

List of 4 items.

  • High School Boarding

  • High School Day

  • Grades 1-8

  • Kindergarten

Many families are able to contribute the full amount of published tuition, and many families contribute much less than the average: we are proud of our socio-economic diversity, and proud to work with each individual family to reach a tuition amount they can dedicate to the education of their children.
To find out your level of affordability, simply apply to High Mowing (it’s free), and visit our Financial Aid page and submit an application to School and Students Services (SSS). (Please note that there is a $49 application fee to use this third party service).
