Affording North Cross School
FAQs for Prospective Parents
Is every family required to submit a Tailored Tuition application?
No, families are not required to participate. Any family concerned about affording the full tuition rate at North Cross School should consider a Tailored Tuition.
Do I need to apply for admission separately from applying for a Tailored Tuition?
Yes. The application for admission to North Cross School and the application for a Tailored Tuition are two separate processes. However, new families may complete both applications simultaneously.
Will applying for a Tailored Tuition hurt my student’s chance of being admitted to the school?
No. Admission applications and Tailored Tuition applications are evaluated separately, and an application for a Tailored Tuition has no bearing on the admission process. North Cross School has a need-blind admission policy.
Does North Cross School offer a “multi-student discount”?
Not exactly. However, one of the considerations for Tailored Tuitions relates to family size and number of students applying for admission or enrolled at North Cross School. The application takes into account the increased impact on a family's financial situation when applying for more than one child.
What kind of financial situation is typical of those who receive a Tailored Tuition?
A wide range of families with a variety of circumstances receive Tailored Tuitions, from those who are able to pay close to top of the tuition range to those who are at the entry level of the range. Many factors are evaluated, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family. Click on each image to see an infographic with the full example.

Is it possible to attend North Cross School at no cost?
No. Every family is required to make a financial investment in their child’s education. Our commitment to providing Tailored Tuitions means that we are sharing in that investment with you.
Do I need to apply for a Tailored Tuition every year?
Yes. A new application must be submitted every year. North Cross remains committed to maintaining similar levels of tuition responsibility, with similar financial circumstances. If a family’s ability to contribute to the student’s education increases, the tuition rate may increase accordingly.
Does North Cross offer scholarships?
Yes. The school offers academic merit-based scholarships. There are no athletic scholarships.
