Affording TFS

At Tallulah Falls School, tuition provides only part of the cost of educating a student. The difference between tuition and the total cost is made up through the philanthropic donations of the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation, our endowment, and other annual funds and contributions. 

Since expenses to educate each day student amount to approximately $27,000 annually, the actual tuition cost represents a significant saving for each family. 

In addition to need-based aid, merit aid is available to qualified students based on grade point average each calendar year. For multi-student families not receiving financial assistance, a 25% discount per additional child is applied annually.

Tallulah Falls School offers a unique tuition freeze program. While the school's base tuition rate may increase over time, each student's base tuition rate remains fixed and frozen at the point of entry. Additionally, the same base tuition rate is extended to siblings who enroll in the future. Families receiving financial aid must reapply for assistance annually.

Tuition covers instruction, a laptop, books, laboratory equipment and materials, athletic privileges, most art supplies, music and drama instruction, room & board for boarding students, lunch for day students, and some off-campus activities and trips.
