We value the inclusion of families with a broad range of economic diversity understanding that they enhance the educational experience and the culture of the school for all constituents. Through our Tuition Assistance Program, we endeavor to help families of economic diversity who embrace the school's mission with financial support to meet the cost of a Town School education.
