Financing a Meridian Education

At Meridian, we believe that an excellent education thrives in an increasingly diverse and inclusive school community. For this reason, we are committed to offering an accessible educational program for mission-appropriate students, regardless of a family’s ability to pay the full cost of tuition. 


The Meridian School maintains a philosophy that requires active participation of a student’s entire family in funding this educational opportunity. However, we understand that investing in your child’s educational foundation requires a significant financial commitment. In order to make our program more accessible, Meridian grants awards to students based upon demonstrated need. Our tuition assistance program currently supports 21% of our student body, and the average annual tuition for an award recipient is $19,481. Awards range from 9% to 98% of the cost of tuition.

Tuition, Fees, and Other Expenses

Tuition for the 2024–2025 school year is $34,060 (pre-K–2nd) and $34,340 (3rd-5th). The difference in tuition cost reflects the increased cost of field trips for the upper grades. Tuition for the 2025–2026 year will be announced by The Meridian School’s board of trustees in early February 2025.

Fees and expenses not covered by the cost of tuition include:

  • Extended Day fees for 2024-2025. There are two enrollment options. Full-time is $5,370 per year and intermittent care is $36 per day. Visit the Extended Day page for more details. Tuition assistance recipients registered for full-time Extended Day qualify for fee assistance equal to the same percentage as the student’s tuition assistance award.
  • After-school enrichment classes. Fees range from $180 to $370 per class. Tuition assistance recipients may enroll in three enrichment classes per year at a discounted rate (of an equal percentage to their family’s tuition assistance award).
