TUITION…

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.

TO FILL OUT YOUR FACTS APPLICATION, PLEASE SEE OUR ADMISSIONS PAGE!

Approximately 90% of BFS families pay a fee calculated on the sliding scale.
