Boarding Student Tuition

As a private, independent school, Cotter Schools is financially supported by a variety of sources: parent/family tuition, local tuition grants, fundraising efforts, and benefactor generosity. Providing an excellent academic education, as well as a large variety of extracurricular activities, is a significant financial commitment for all. However, Cotter Schools is committed to making “The Cotter Experience” affordable by providing tuition grants upon request.
