Walnut Hill School for the Arts

Tuition 2020–2021

Walnut Hill has made the decision to not increase tuition over the previous stated tuition and fees schedule. We have spent considerable time calculating tuition given significant increased costs for the 2020–21 school, including reduced density requirements, additional cleaning, increased technology purchases, and health and safety needs. Tuition, not including fees, is updated as follows.  All other fees remain as previously laid out on the Tuition and Fees 2020–21 information sheet. 

Walnut Hill hybrid program tuition
Day: $49,990 (assumes 3 quarters day/1 online)
Boarding: $62,290 (assumes 3 quarters boarding/1quarter online)
Walnut Hill Online tuition
Online: $49,990 (assumes 4 quarters online)

Financial aid awards will be adjusted to reflect updated tuition. Families should expect their total costs to remain similar to those laid out in their prior award.  

Students who choose to stay during the breaks between terms (not the breaks inside the terms) and who elect to stay over the summer will be charged $750 per week, including all meals.
