Books and required school trips are included in tuition. Lunch is included for 3rd-12th grade students, but 3's and 4's families bring lunch from home. K-2nd grade families may bring lunch from home or subscribe to lunch provided by Red Rabbit at an additional cost. A light breakfast is also available for 3rd-12th grade students.
After school programs (ASP), including extended care, and Summer Camps are not included in the tuition. For families receiving tuition assistance, the cost of in-house after school programs is reduced by the same percentage as the tuition award. Annual Parent Association dues ($100 per family) are additional.
Tuition Assistance is considered for students applying to kindergarten through grade 12, but not to applicants to the 3’s or 4’s programs. Families who enroll in the 3's or 4's may apply for tuition assistance for the kindergarten year, though we cannot guarantee that tuition assistance will be awarded. For the 2019-20 academic school year, tuition assistance will be considered for kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 9th grade applicants.
It is the school’s expectation that families who start at Calhoun paying full tuition will continue to do so. In cases where there is a dramatic change in financial circumstances, very limited “emergency funds” are available. In this situation, Calhoun accepts applications for assistance from returning families who have not received it in the past. The school cannot, however, guarantee that there will be sufficient funds available to continue the assistance for more than one year. Families requesting emergency funds are asked to contact the School's controller.
