Without state or federal funding, tuition and gifts provide 100 percent of our school’s operating budget. But as four decades of Emerson families and alumni will tell you, an Emerson education is one of the best investments you will ever make.
- Kindergarten: $16,550
- Grades 1–5: $19,795
- Grades 6–8: $21,525
Tuition refund insurance is available and provides a safeguard in the event of family relocation, employment change, injury/illness, or other unexpected change. See the dropdown below for more information.
Additional fees include $35 Emerson School Parent Organization (ESPO) annual dues, and fees associated with classroom activities and/or field trips, which vary by grade and classroom. Contact Admissions Director Lisa Psarouthakis for more information.
Financial Aid is Available
If you’re considering Emerson but cost is a barrier, please apply online for financial aid. A wide range of aid is available depending on each family’s need—whether great, small, or the majority who are somewhere in between.
More than $450,000 of Financial Aid is Available
The amount of financial aid a family is eligible to receive is determined independently through the FACTS Grant & Aid Financial Needs Assessment. Each application is then reviewed by Emerson’s Financial Aid Committee, and individual circumstances are considered. Families will know the final amount of aid offered to them before being asked to complete an enrollment contract.
To apply, please complete the FACTS Grant & Aid Financial Needs Assessment linked below. You will need to have your most recent tax return and W2s (even if it’s the previous year’s).

Note: The application reflects 2016-2017 tuition. This will be updated with 2017-2018 tuition numbers when finalized, which may not be before the FA application deadline. Families will see any associated changes to FA in advance of the re-enrollment contract deadline in March.
