Tuition and Financial Aid

2019-2020 Tuition

Grades 1-5:  $36,800
Grades 6-8:  $38,700  (includes the use of a MacBook for each student)


Tuition covers all fees  including a daily lunch program. The only additional fee a family may incur is if their child participates in After-School Guided Study, where for a nominal fee students can work on homework in a quiet setting with Benchmark teachers providing supervision.
 
Benchmark School offers our families three payment plans:

  • Payment in full
  • Payment in three installments
  • Smart Tuition (9 month payment plan)

Financial Aid

Benchmark believes that access to educational excellence should be available to all qualified students, regardless of financial means. Therefore, we are proud to offer need-based financial aid in hopes that no family will be discouraged from applying due to financial need.
 

Benchmark School provides financial aid grants based on need. Application for financial aid is managed through SSS (School and Student Services) of NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools). The SSS forms provide Benchmark with an objective means of helping to determine each family’s level of need. Families who intend to apply for financial aid are encouraged to do so at the time they make application for admission.

"Nothing is more important than giving your child a good start in school. And there is nothing worse than your child having a poor experience – you want your child to love school, not hate it. Studies show a child’s early school experience determines how he or she will succeed in later grades. As a parent, you want to be sure that your child is being served by a school environment that will help him her not just succeed, but thrive, now, in high school, in college, and in life." - Association of Delaware Valley Schools.org

What better investment in your children’s future than giving them the best option to love school early?  It may make all the difference in their lives.

Richard and I often spoke about Benchmark as being an investment. We could have put our money in the stock market, but the return on that investment couldn't be guaranteed. On the other hand, our investment in Benchmark is sure to give Blake lifelong returns.
