Affording Presidio Hill

At Presidio Hill School, we understand that many families find it challenging to pay an independent school tuition. In an effort to make our school as accessible as possible, we continue to investigate alternative tuition structures and encourage our families to explore other options as well.

We believe the value of a Presidio Hill education far exceeds the considerable financial commitment it requires and understand some families will need further assistance. We are committed to helping our families find the resources to make their children's attendance a reality and provide 22% of our student body with tuition assistance.
