  7. What is a family's adjusted tuition rate?

    A family adjusted tuition rate would be the total tuition amount deemed available to a family to spend towards a Greenhills education. Greenhills reviews a family’s income, expenses, assets, and liabilities to come to a number that fits within their budget.


  8. How are adjusted tuition rates determined?

    Families complete a financial analysis application (Clarity Tuition) which Greenhills uses to determine eligibility for the variable tuition program.


  9. What do you do with households with other tuition expenses outside of Greenhills (other private schools, college/university, etc)?

    In these circumstances, we allow as part of our assessment a percentage of the other tuition into our equation to help us determine eligibility.


  10. Are there income thresholds for qualifying for the variable tuition program?

    While we treat every profile as unique, historically, household incomes over $200K (with one child) typically do not meet the qualifying criteria to be in the variable tuition program.


  11. What percentage of the student body participates in the Variable Tuition Program?

    Over 20 percent of the student body receives a variable tuition rate with an average variable tuition rate of $13,000. Forty percent of the families in our Variable Tuition Program earn incomes of $75,000 to $150,000 per year.
