Technology Fee

A technology fee is due the first day of August before your child’s 3rd grade year. This covers the cost of a computer and associated equipment your child will use at school; at the end of 5th grade (or when your child leaves Tilden), families will keep the computer and equipment. The fee this year was $300.00. The fee for 2025 will be announced in spring, 2024.


Tilden School works hard to keep tuition as affordable as possible while providing an excellent education. We do not require our families to fund raise or contribute to scholarships; tuition does not include any extra amount to subsidize scholarships. Therefore, we do not provide financial aid.

Tuition for 2025-2026 will be announced before tuition deposits are due.
