Brooklyn Free School offers sliding scale tuition. Sliding-scale tuition enables all BFS families to educate their children as equal members of an economically, racially, and culturally diverse community.
Sliding-scale tuition is based on the principle that a family’s financial commitment should be in equitable proportion to its financial resources.
Brooklyn Free School asks that all families complete a financial worksheet by submitting a FACTS online application. This financial worksheet is used to calculate a students tuition. We refer to this as a ‘contracted tuition amount.’
If families choose to opt out of completing a FACTS application, they are committing to paying max tuition: $30,000 for our General School (Pre-K – 6th Grade), and $33,000 for our Middle/High School (7th – 12th Grade).
**Special Note: Families that receive public assistance may submit proof of aid rather than complete a FACTS online application.
Approximately 90% of BFS families pay a fee calculated on the sliding scale.
