A Seacrest education is not in your budget?

Not so fast. View the available Flexible Tuitions below and apply if you believe a reduced tuition will enable your child(ren) to enroll.

What is Flexible Tuition?

Traditional financial aid models produce students who fall in one of two categories: full-pay or very little pay. Seacrest Country Day School enrolls a socioeconomic diverse population of mission-appropriate students and families; a community parallel to the world we reside. Middle income families are vital for the success of a robust, independent school community. Flexible Tuition enables parents to make the investment of a Seacrest education for their children, at a cost appropriate for their family.

More families qualify for Flexible Tuition than you think.

Current Seacrest families who qualify for a Flexible Tuition have incomes up to $340,000. The average income of families paying an indexed tuition is $117,000 and 40% of our families pay a Flexible Tuition.

How do families qualify for a Flexible Tuition?

To determine if a family qualifies for a Flexible Tuition offer, Seacrest utilizes Student and School Services (SSS), a consulting firm and processor of tuition assistance applications for independent schools across the country.

Flexible Tuition qualification based primarily on the family’s prior year income and overall financial situation. Our committee evaluates each application in a fair, consistent and confidential manner. We take time to understand the nuances and unique circumstances of each family.
