Affording San Domenico

San Domenico School Community Gathering


Indexed Tuition is a model in which tuition rates are customized according to each family’s financial ability to contribute to their educational expenses. It provides a welcoming way for families to join our community from a wide variety of economic backgrounds; key to meeting our San Domenico Mission of celebrating diversity and responding with integrity to the needs and challenges of our time. Indexed Tuition increases socioeconomic diversity, strengthens our School for long-term sustainability, and reflects our commitment to maintaining an inclusive community of 21st Century learners working together to promote a peaceful and sustainable world.


Indexed Tuition at San Domenico is based on each family's unique financial profile.

2019-20 Tuition Ranges

39% of SD families pay below the top of the index.

San Domenico Tuition Includes...

*K-8 families have the choice to opt out of food service.


We encourage all families interested in a San Domenico education to apply for admission. When considering the process of determining your indexed tuition rate, please keep the following in mind:

  • Conversations with families regarding tuition and affordability are managed with respect and confidentiality
  • Tuition at the top of the index still does not cover the actual cost of a San Domenico education so every student’s tuition is indexed to some degree. The Indexed tuition budget is comprised of funds from the annual operating budget as well as income from endowment.
  • Families must apply for Indexed Tuition each year however the index rarely shifts unless there is a significant change in a family’s ability to pay.
