Forsyth School_Tuition & Fees

As families consider their investment in their child(ren)'s education, we ask them to remember that Forsyth School is an important investment that pays off twofold: in an unforgettable experience for the entire family AND in exceptional preparation for secondary school and beyond.

  • Pre-K/Jr-K/Sr-K: $23,220

Forsyth offers three unique payment plans (single, quarterly, and monthly), the Tuition Refund Plan, and tuition assistance (for qualifying families). Learn more about Forsyth's Financial Aid Program.

Through a robust Financial Aid Program, Forsyth strives to assist families for whom the cost of independent school tuition is the only barrier to attendance. In general, families with a combined annual income of less than $150,000 typically receive some tuition assistance. More than 25% of Forsyth students receive financial aid, with an average grant award of $10,000.

Families who qualify for and receive financial aid receive 50% off Extended Day Program fees (Before Care and After Care), plus a percentage reduction on League Sports fees.
