Sliding-Scale Tuition

Brooklyn Independent uses a unique sliding-scale tuition model. This model supports our
commitment to making a Brooklyn Independent education accessible to a wide range of families with a variety of economic circumstances.

How it Works:

  • Families pay tuition based on their financial resources. All families submit a confidential financial worksheet (TADS) as part of their application which is used to determine each family's tuition level. The determination of each family's tuition contribution is not solely based on income.

Why We Use It:

  • We believe all families deserve the right to full participation in our community and as such, we use a sliding-scale tuition model to provide equal access for all families across all income levels. Our sliding-scale tuition model is inspired by Manhattan Country School's sliding-scale tuition model. 

2022-2023 Tuition Ranges:

  • $550 - $40,550
