Our Mission: The Raleigh School is a cooperative community of children, parents and teachers that fosters a love of learning in an atmosphere of challenge, inquiry and respect.


Financial Aid

The Raleigh School is committed to fostering a warm and inclusive community built on a foundation of respect and equity. As a community, we recognize the important role economic diversity plays in enriching our community and the educational and social-emotional experience of our children. We provide need-based tuition assistance in order to ensure enrollment is within reach to a broad range of families.

The Raleigh School offers financial aid to all eligible families. Awards are based on need as assessed by a third-party service, Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). In order to ensure we have sufficient funds for those who qualify, typically 80% of a family's need is met and a per family maximum award for the 2023-2024 school year is $25,200.


A small financial aid committee at The Raleigh School reviews TADS recommendations and makes confidential decisions.

For financial aid families, the cost of field trips is waived.



The most amazing thing about this is that my children were in an environment that has fostered a love of learning. Not only is the learning fun but the teachers allow the kids to be kids and use their own creativity. No matter where they go to middle school I believe that TRS has set the foundation of how teachers should treat students and how people treat people.
