your GSer?
I just wondered how much tuition varied from place to place.
I haven't registered Tia yet but I plan to next week. I have no idea what to expect.

When I had one of my older dd's in private school, it ran $450 a month plus our cost of uniforms as well. When I inquired just this passed year (was thinking of putting my GSer in a private school) the tuition there is $525 month plus the cost of uniforms. That does include their lunch and breakfast and some supplies.

I'd be interested to see how tuition varies from place to place.

At our private school, Kindergarten is free, Grades 1-6 are really close to $1000 for the year, and it goes up a little for grade 7-12.

I'm in the Great Northwest of the U.S., and my two kids (Kindergarten and 2nd grade) go to private school at $8000 a year EACH. The school we've chosen is not the most expensive in the area.

Also, they do have a monthly plan I think, but the interest rate for the privelege of paying monthly is 10%. For the 2005-2006 school year, we paid the whole amount by the end of June. (This allowed us to get a 5% discount.) I think to incrue no interest, the school tuition deadline is August 1st.
