Tuition & Financial Aid

Field believes in socioeconomic diversity as a part of its commitment to inclusivity. Our Board of Trustees sets tuition annually after carefully considering what the school needs to educate students according to our mission.  

Tuition for the 2023-24 School Year
Middle School: (grades 6-8) $52,750
Upper School: (grades 9-12) $54,335  

Tuition insurance is offered through Dewars and is required for any family choosing the two-payment and 10-payment plans.

Financial Aid

At Field, we strive to create an inclusive community of learners that reflects the DC metropolitan area's culturally, racially, and economically diverse population. Our Financial Aid program increases access to a Field education. For the 2023-24 school year, Field allocated $2.75 million in financial aid to 20% of our students, with an average award of $39,275.

All financial aid is need-based. If you anticipate the need for financial aid at any time during your student's tenure at Field, you are strongly encouraged to apply for aid in your first year. The Field School has a careful process for allocating its financial aid budget each year and across graduating classes. Therefore, Field can only consider applications from returning families if the need is newly arisen. In such cases, the school will do its best to offer aid to meet the needs within its budget, but financial assistance is not guaranteed.

Our financial aid application is available through Clarity, and is separate from the Ravenna admission application.
