  • Among "Schools with < 200 Students", view the boarding schools with the least expensive tuition (2018-19).
  • Another factor to consider when evaluating the affordability of a school is the the average size of financial aid grants that a school provides.
  • Schools with higher tuition costs may actually turn out to be less expensive depending on how much aid a school can offer (which is also dependent on your family's financial circumstances and eligibility to receive aid).
