Tuition & Financial Assistance

Our highest goal is giving each child what they most need while at the same time making a Carroll education broadly accessible.

To fulfill its mission, Carroll seeks a culturally, ethnically, and economically diverse population. Carroll is committed to building a robust Financial Assistance program to support a vibrant community with many voices and perspectives. This year we will award more than $4.15 million in need-based financial assistance to 24% of our student body. 

We work closely with families to make Carroll School affordable. Should you want to learn more, please reach out. We are here to help.

Tuition for the 2024-25 school year is $63,550.

My daughter went from crying every day to getting up early to go to Carroll. There was no way that Carroll could be a possibility without financial assistance. The Admissions team worked with me to make Carroll a reality.
