At Caldwell Academy we value the ability to attract and retain a community who is passionately committed to our mission and vision. We further believe that our school is enriched and strengthened through a student body that is socioeconomically diverse. We understand that for some families, the decision to pursue a private education comes down to a question of value and affordability. For this reason, we are excited to offer a variable tuition schedule.

While every family at Caldwell is expected to contribute to the cost of tuition and fees to the extent their circumstances allow, our variable tuition helps us consider the needs of your family.

Tuition ranges for the 2019-2020 school year are as follows:


Full Tuition

TK $5,802 N/A
K-5  $10,125 $6,075 – $10,125
6-8  $11,896 $7,137 – $11,896
