Los Angeles Private School Tuition: A List



* Here’s an updated tuition list for 2015-16


You’re right. L.A. private school tuition isn’t cheap. And, tuition doesn’t even cover the full cost of educating a child at a private school. So, in addition to writing the big check, a parent can expect to contribute to annual giving, auctions or gala fundraisers and numerous other events throughout the year. Tuition typically rises about 4 percent per year, depending on the school.


Still, we think the cost is worth every penny. The quality of education at L.A. private schools is generally superb.  Excellent teachers, fully integrated and staffed technology programs, low student/teacher ratio, tight security, gardens bright, large classrooms and state-of-the-art facilities are just a few of the resources you’re paying for. Your kid’s opportunity to build life-long friends and colleagues who may become future movers and shakers is also a priceless benefit that is built into the hefty price tag.
