Tuition & Affordability

We believe that the cost of a St. Michael’s education should not be a deterrent to any family, regardless of income and assets.

At St. Michael’s Country Day School, we believe in shaping the future of our children’s school community. We also believe that the advantages of an independent school, (small class size, individualized instruction, leadership opportunities in the classroom and community, a strong arts, technology and athletics program), should be available to as many academically qualified students as possible. Economic diversity improves the educational and social experience for students and is critical to sustaining a healthy school culture.

All-Inclusive Tuition

Extended School Day programming is included in the price of tuition ($6,100 value to families). There will be NO additional fee associated with these programs. Children can stay at St. Michael’s from morning drop off until 5:30pm with no additional cost incurred. (Note: Excludes the Enrichment Program.)

Financial need is determined through the careful analysis of a family’s financial resources and the ability to contribute to their child’s education. Awards are determined with the guidance of the objective financial analysis provided by School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS. To apply, please click the link below.

Active Military Discount

St. Michael’s is proud of its long, historical connection to the US military and US military families in Newport. Each year, the school enrolls fifteen to twenty five students from families connected to the Naval Academy’s War College and other service related duties. US military families bring a rich trove of national and international diversity to our community and enrich the experience of all our students.

The school has been exceptionally supportive to US military families through financial assistance. While classroom spaces and tuition assistance funds are available, active military families who apply for financial assistance can expect to receive support commensurate with their families’ need. St. Michael’s Country Day School’s military discount for U.S. families on active duty is 50% for students in grades Kindergarten – Grade 8. (We will offer a 25% military discount for families who have children in the Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs).
