Affording Shore

Investing in Your Child’s Future

We believe the lifelong value of an independent school education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of financial resources. Guided by its mission to “find strength in diversity, appreciate differences of opinion, and recognize the necessity of respect among all individuals,” the Shore community is made stronger by the enrollment of families from a full spectrum of economic circumstances. We encourage you to consider Shore no matter how much tuition you can afford to pay.

Paying Tuition You Can Afford

Shore sets families’ tuition at the level they can afford; we determine each individual family’s ability to pay by evaluating a range of factors. Many Shore families sacrifice to pay tuition at the highest level, while many more contribute at reduced levels that fairly reflect their ability to pay. With over $1 million available annually to bridge the difference between the amount of tuition families are able to pay and the full cost of a Shore education, we are committed to making our school as accessible as possible. Financial assistance is funded at Shore through a combination of Endowed Funds, Operating Budget, The Shore Fund, and the generosity of the Parents Association.

Annual tuition
Making the Most of Your Payments

The tuition you pay includes the cost of classroom supplies, day and overnight field trips, school pictures and yearbook, and a daily snack and lunch. Varied payment schedules are available through Smart Tuition Management to meet your family’s budgeting needs.
Sustaining and Re-Using

With economy and sustainability in mind, all Shore parents are invited to exchange used sports equipment and gently-used dress code apparel through the school’s “Replay” program.

Shore actively seeks young students with academic promise and a range of talents, skills and interests. Shore Country Day School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, religion, or sexual orientation to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, genetic information (including genetic predisposition or carrier status), national and ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, or military service in the administration of its educational policies, employment policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
