Affording OES

OES believes that diversity in our community is essential to the student experience. In our commitment to inclusion, we offer a need-based program—Flexible Tuition—to assist families who would not otherwise be able to access an OES education. We encourage families to apply for admissions regardless of their financial circumstance.

Flexible Tuition

Approximately 20% of students at OES pay a reduced tuition. The charts that follow show average Flexible Tuition paid by income. The charts are representative of families with non-retirement assets below $200,000. Families with high assets should contact our office to discuss their potential qualification.

One Child at OES (Day Student)
(No other children in tuition charging school/college/daycare)

Families with only one child at OES often qualify for aid with incomes up to $150,000. Families above this income threshold may want to contact our office to determine if other circumstances in their family finances qualify them for Flexible Tuition.

(Or another tuition charging school/college/daycare)


Families supporting two or more children at OES (or one child at OES and another in a tuition charging school/college or daycare) with incomes up to $250,000 should consider applying for Flexible Tuition. If one of your children is attending another private school and/or college, you are required to apply for financial aid at that institution.
