In 2020-21, starting on the 11th day on which the campus is closed for K-8th grade students and we are in required distance learning (measured cumulatively across one or more campus closings), we will implement tuition reductions for ongoing distance learning.
Families with students in 2nd through 8th grade will receive a 33 percent reduction to their child’s daily tuition rate for each school day that campus continues to be closed and distance learning occurs, while families with kindergarten and 1st grade students will receive a 50 percent reduction to their child’s daily tuition rate.
Please note: The minimum full-pay tuition that will be charged in 2020-21, after distance learning reductions, is $12,500 for 1st-8th grades and $12,000 for kindergarten, or approximately 70 percent of your family’s indexed tuition rate if you receive indexed tuition. There will be no further reductions in daily tuition if we reach that point.
Families who choose to learn from home when campus is open for in-person classes will not be eligible for a reduction during that time, though of course the school will continue to provide access to learning materials and lessons and to live-streamed classroom instruction.
Canterbury is aware that many families have been deeply affected financially by COVID-19. To provide a stable environment for students currently enrolled, and to continue to provide opportunities for new students to enroll, we seek to support families through these troubling times to the best of our abilities Our COVID-19 Emergency Financial Aid was established to provide short-term relief to families experiencing a dramatic decrease in income due to the pandemic. Through monthly assistance, our goal is to help families through difficult times until their income resumes, at which time, assistance is no longer needed. Families experiencing a significant decrease in income are encouraged to contact Caroline Walker, our director of admissions, to apply for consideration for COVID-19 Emergency Financial Aid.
