Tuition & Tuition Assistance

Swift School is committed to admitting qualified applicants regardless of the family’s ability to pay full tuition.


The purpose of financial aid is to enhance and enrich the Swift School community and educational experience by financially supporting students who are particularly well-suited for Swift School yet who are challenged to attend due to financial limitations. Tuition assistance supports Swift’s commitment to inclusiveness as articulated in the school’s Diversity Policy Statement.

Tuition Assistance Options

Many tuition assistance options, including payment plans, need-based tuition assistance, GOAL scholarship, and SB-10 Special Needs Scholarships are available to help families cover the cost of tuition.

Awards are granted to families from a variety of financial backgrounds, including those who may have a high level of demonstrated need and those who may require only minimal financial assistance. The Financial Aid Committee awards tuition assistance to families who have a demonstrated financial need. When determining a family’s need the committee considers the amount of support which both parents may be expected to contribute.

You will be able to apply for tuition assistance during the application process.

Based on assessed financial need, families may qualify for financial assistance of up to 50% of tuition and fees.

Assistance is offered without regard to sex, race, color, nationality, religion, or ethnic origin. Financial information is held in strictest confidence. A family's need for tuition assistance is re-evaluated each year.

Tuition for 2020-21

Because Swift School is a private school, we must charge tuition to cover our operating expenses. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Swift School education. Each year, generous donations to the school’s Annual Fund contribute significantly toward each student’s education.
