Affording The Oaks


The founders of The Oaks School regarded socioeconomic diversity a core educational value, and we remain committed to providing a range of tuition assistance to families seeking an independent K-6 school education. Keeping The Oaks accessible to a wide cross section of students and families enriches the school environment for all students. We are able to offer qualifying families in need a variety of tuition assistance plans ranging from a few thousand dollars to almost full tuition.


The Char Sadler Financial Aid Endowment has been established to begin growing an on-going funding source for tuition assistance. This endowment provides a strong foundation to support our goal of keeping our community accessible for years to come.


Support Beyond Tuition

The Oaks realizes that the cost of educating a child at an independent school extends beyond tuition. We want all families to have access to and the ability to participate in all aspects of the community. When a family receives tuition assistance they may also receive discounts on enrichment programs, after school care and our summer program as well.
