Tuition & Financial Aid

We understand that an independent school education requires a major financial commitment and takes careful planning for most families. To support families in the planning process, Foote offers a number of financing options as well as a program of need-based financial assistance.

Foote values diversity. Providing financial aid strengthens the economic and social diversity at Foote. Financial Aid aims to provide access to a Foote education to qualified students whose families might otherwise not be able to afford the tuition. For the 2018-19 school year, roughly 25 percent of our students are receiving approximately $1.9 million in need-based financial aid, with grants ranging from $1,000 to nearly full tuition.

Foote’s curriculum is interdisciplinary, exploring themes across subject areas to create deeper connections. As part of a unit on Australia and the Great Barrier Reef, third graders drew underwater scenes on scratch board.
