Tuition and Fees

Tuition: Spring 2022

At Tilden Preparatory School, tuition is customized to meet the individual academic needs of each high school and middle school student. Our curriculum consists of over 150 UC-approved courses, including 34 AP courses and 27 Honors courses.

To learn more about our tuition and program options, please schedule a consultation call with the Head of School at your preferred campus. We will be happy to consult with you to help determine which course of instruction is likely to be the best fit for your student.

While we would like to share some registration and tuition information here, due to the highly customized nature of our program, we prefer to have an in-depth meeting to review your student's course selections and schedule including a transcript review as tuition costs can vary depending on the number of courses and instructional hours your student signs up for each week. Some students will get partial credit for classes in progress resulting in reduced fees.

    • $3,000-$3,500 per semester-long course*

*This pricing is approximate and reflects our estimate of 30-35 instructional hours per semester-long course for most courses. Students can complete a class in a minimum of 15 hours. The instruction rate is $100/hr. 

  • Full-time students have a  flat registration fee of $2,500 that includes all books, materials, on campus social events, ongoing communication with parents, daily progress notes, and preparation of customized curriculum.

Part-time students have a $250 registration fee per semester-long course.

We welcome your request for an individual consultation to tell us about your student. An outcome of the consultation will be a tailored tuition estimate and we can also help you determine if Tilden is a good fit for your student and your family

“My son is thriving at Tilden Preparatory School, which should be on your short list. Some kids simply need one-on-one instruction to learn, and Tilden has the process to successfully do this. Unlike some of the ASD-specific schools, Tilden has the academic curriculum both for the students who are struggling or are looking for something far more challenging than public schools.”
