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.


Tuition Assistance

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 tuition assistance to all eligible families. Awards are based on need as assessed by a third-party service, Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). TADS collects basic financial information on income, expenses, assets and liabilities, family size, siblings in tuition-based schools, and any special circumstances. The Raleigh School's Tuition Assistance Committee reviews this confidential information to determine a family's eligibility for assistance. 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 2024-2025 school year is $28,320. 

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.
