Tuition Assistance

Tuition for the 2018-19 school year is $24,710. GCE Lab School provides need-based tuition assistance. Awards range from 25% to 75% of tuition based on each applicant’s demonstrated financial need and merit.

Applying for Tuition Assistance

If you would like to be considered for tuition assistance, we strongly suggest applying in the first admissions round by December 1. After February 11, the majority of tuition assistance dollars will be allocated.

All tuition assistance decisions must be accepted in writing by the stated deadline (or at the time of enrollment). Unaccepted offers may be reallocated at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee. While we strive to honor our commitment of tuition assistance to those families in need, receiving an award is no guarantee of future awards, as all applications are reviewed on a needs basis. All applicants are required to apply annually.

Families apply for tuition assistance using our 3rd party reviewer TADS.


GCE Lab School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial assistance program, or athletic and other school-administered programs.

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT to stop the admissions process and/or NOT to admit an applicant if we determine that we cannot responsibly and/or ethically serve the applicant/student and/or family.
