Since its inception in 1896, Menaul School has been committed to making an excellent education accessible and affordable to all as equal members of an economically diverse community. Today, Menaul School embodies this belief through its Flex Tuition program where tuition is set as a percentage of a family’s income and financial resources. Flex Tuition is an optional program.
Many factors, such as number of children, investments, assets, etc., are taken into account for each family’s cost of attendance determination. Families can elect not to submit their financial information and pay the full annual cost of attendance, $16,280.
