Tuition only covers 70% of the true cost of a CCS Education.

CCS deliberately sets tuition below full cost in order to keep our school more affordable to a wider range of students, and to provide community members with opportunities to support the school with tax-deductible, philanthropic commitments.


Each and every gift and volunteer hour donated allows CCS to invest in the education of students whose creativity, confidence, and intellect will be called upon to make a difference in our world.

Like all independent schools, CCS relies on a combination of tuition revenue and the private support of the community to meet both annual operating expenses as well as long-term strategic needs. 

These gifts support the people and programs that make our school so special – the incredible faculty, small classes, and up-to-date technology as well as exceptional hands-on learning opportunities in the arts, outdoor education, entrepreneurship, athletics, and so many areas in between.
