15 Of The Most Affordable Private Elementary Schools in L.A. and Pasadena

Piggy bank

Our post about tuition is one of the most popular on the blog. So, I thought a piece highlighting some of the most affordable private schools would be useful. I selected private elementary schools with tuition lower than $15K per year. There’s nothing magical about tuition under $15K except that less expensive schools can be hard to find. I also know families at most of these schools and I’ve great things about them all. Tuition is usually listed in the “admissions” section of school websites. Please note that tuition listed is for 2014-15 and does not include additional one-time fees, If you’re looking for a budget-conscious private elementary school, you should definitely check out these schools!
