“An investment in education pays the best dividends.

— Benjamin Franklin

Sending a child to NewGate represents a significant financial investment for most families. At the same time, independent schools, like ours, rely on tuition, instead of government funding. Our families recognize and appreciate that NewGate is an education for life.

Tuition assistance is “a reduction in tuition granted to families with a legitimate need determined by an objective and independent” third-party assessment of their financial position.” The tuition assistance committee bases financial aid decisions on the family’s needs for the upcoming year” BeneFAQ.com is the third-party reviewer for the financial aid process. Visit BeneFAQ.com to apply for assistance. Families who receive financial aid need to complete a new application annually.

Financial aid allows us to create a more diverse school community. NewGate’s budget includes a need-based financial aid fund for families who could not otherwise afford full tuition. Applications for financial aid are considered by TADS through a confidential analysis of the family’s financial need. Enrolled families may apply for financial aid through TADS. For additional information, please visit  Financial aid information or contact us at [email protected].

“The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.”
