Tuition and Fees
Independent schools offer a strong curriculum, small classes, individual attention for each student, dedicated teachers and advisors, opportunities for appropriate parental involvement, a sense of community, and a wide range of extracurricular activities. The careful, personal guidance students and their families receive on secondary school and college placement is an added benefit. Families that value education for their daughters should seriously consider Trinity Hall.

Trinity Hall makes every effort to assist families with the cost of education. We are committed to making a Trinity Hall education accessible to families at all income levels.
Financial aid is awarded on a yearly basis to qualified students demonstrating need, based on the information parents provide to our selected online financial aid assessment system. Trinity Hall awards grants, which do not have to be repaid, to bridge the gap between what a family can afford and the cost of tuition. Special family circumstances are considered in determining awards.
In an effort to be as consistent as possible in assessing a family’s need for financial assistance, Trinity Hall utilizes the services of an online financial aid assessment system. Services offered from our partner company, TADS, increase ease, accuracy, impartiality, confidentiality, and expertise throughout the process.
