Tuition is designed to cover the real cost of a student's education at Rivendell.  For this reason, Rivendell does not charge book, program, or activity fees.

Tuition is due as of July 1 for the coming school year, and may be paid in 10 monthly payments, July 1 through April 1. Families that withdraw a student after July 1 are required to pay tuition until another student has enrolled at Rivendell.


Tuition for the 2017-18 school year:
  • Grades 1-8, $9,350
  • 4-day Kindergarten, $8,300

Tuition for the 2018-19 school year is set by the Board of Trustees in January.


The Rivendell Board of Trustees has established a Scholarship Fund so that financial need would not prevent a child from attending Rivendell School.  Scholarships are awarded annually on the basis of financial need and on Rivendell’s desire for a diverse student body. To request scholarship assistance, please complete the Confidential Scholarship Application.  (Please note this fillable pdf form works best with Adobe Reader.)  Allocation of scholarship money is the responsibility of the Scholarship Committee.

Scholarship applications for both new and returning families for the 2018-2019 school year are due by January 31, 2018.  Scholarships must be reapplied for annually.
