Tuition and Affordability

IT STARTS WITH YOUR INVESTMENT

Trinity School of Texas offers advantages and opportunities unique for a college-preparatory Episcopal school and it requires an investment.  We believe it is important that our families understand that their tuition payments directly support the cost of our program and in fact, that tuition fees alone are not sufficient to support the full cost of the education provided.  As such, it is important that every family contribute the maximum amount they can.

Trinity School of Texas is also determined to make a TST education accessible to families from a wide range of economic backgrounds. As such, TST offers Indexed tuition which is tuition at a level that your family can afford.

A commitment to embracing diversity is an essential element of the Trinity School of Texas Graduate Portrait and our school culture. Economic diversity enriches the educational opportunity for all families, and participation of a wide range of families is critical to the health of the school.

The school encourages families to request information about indexed tuition if they have concerns about their ability to afford tuition at the top of the range.

OTHERS ARE INVESTING IN YOUR CHILD, TOO.

The cost of educating one student is actually greater than the tuition. To make up the difference, TST holds auxiliary fund-raising events; uses income from the endowment; and relies on gifts to the Annual Fund. Support for the Annual Fund starts with the faculty, staff and trustees. Their participation rate consistently holds at 100% each year--a reflection of their commitment to TST’s mission and students. Parents, grandparents, alumni, and alumni parents also contribute, and every gift helps to keep tuition as low as possible and make the school affordable to a wider range of students.

Tuition is payable in 1, 2, 10, or 12 installments. You will be asked to select your preferred payment plan when you sign your enrollment agreement.

To help us objectively assess what a family is able to contribute to education expenses, TST uses FACTS as a trusted third party. We use the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment figures as the baseline for our indexed tuition determinations, taking into consideration our school's policies and the resources available for returning students as well as applicant families.

Additionally, each year we have many more qualified applicants than we do indexed tuition awards, so selection for these awards is highly competitive. In order to stretch our indexed tuition budget across the greatest number of families, we have a limited number of high percentage awards available. It’s important that you indicate the maximum contribution you can make in order to have the best opportunity for award selection.

Indexed Tuition is a separate process from the Admission process. We encourage families to apply for admission at the same time. Potential students who may qualify for Indexed Tuition must still meet our behavioral and academic standards to be admitted. TST has established grade level appropriate teacher/student ratios for each class to ensure the highest level of classroom instruction and discipline. We will accept students that meet our standards within those ratios. If we get more students at a grade level than our ratio allows, we may open additional sections. However, we will not overfill classrooms to the detriment of instruction.
