TUITION AND SCHOLARSHIPS
At Yorktown Education, our graduates have been able to achieve significant college scholarships and credits. Yorktown graduates often receive full ride scholarship or full financial packages so they can attend college without paying for it.
We strive to provide an outstanding K-12 education. We target our tuition at 60% of our closest academic competitors tuition (non-secular, quality, co-educational schools – i.e., Greenhill School). Our base tuition is $15,000 but with scholarships and financial aid, many families pay $1,000 a month or less.
We understand the challenges families may face when financing a private education. To help meet these financial demands, we offer a number of payment plans and opportunities. Scholarships are currently available at Yorktown.
Please attend a parent tour where we can discuss your needs.
Tuition Payment Options
Pay in Full
Tuition and Fees may be paid in one lump sum payment by cash, check or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express).
Yorktown Education routinely offers financial scholarships for families demonstrating the need for assistance in affording their child’s education. For more information, contact our office or schedule a parent tour.
Tuition Refund Insurance (Tuition Refund Plan/Dewar Inc.)
We realize that the cost of a private school education is a substantial investment. The Dewar Tuition Refund Plan provides insurance to protect your investment. Because student withdrawals are sometimes unavoidable, the Tuition Refund Plan is a welcome resource for families who must commit to a full annual tuition by signing a contract with the school. In the event of a covered withdrawal or dismissal, payments made by the Plan can assist in fulfilling contractual tuition payments. Currently, 1300 of the leading independent schools and colleges in the nation offer this plan to families in order to provide comprehensive coverage, low cost rates and important consumer protection. The cost of the Dewar Tuition Refund Insurance is 3.2% of tuition. All Yorktown families will receive the mandatory tuition refund insurance and Yorktown will cover the costs of the tuition refund insurance this year.
Payment Options from Your Tuition SolutionSM
Extended payment plans are available from Your Tuition Solution. Plans range from 24 to 84 months and cover tuition amounts up to $40,000. You will be able to include Yorktown’s supply and activity fees in your monthly payments and loan. Interest rates are fixed and can be as low as 3.99% APR. There are no application or origination fees and no prepayment penalty if you decide to pay the loan off early. You can calculate monthly payments, learn more, or apply online at Your Tuition Solution.
Dual Enrollment College Courses
First 60 Credits Free
Yorktown Education pays for the first 60 college credits (two years of college) taken in our dual enrollment courses. Over 400 accredited courses are available in our college program. Given the cost of a college education can reach $65,000/year, this is a considerable deal.
Optional partnership classes associated with third parties like Scuba Diving, Physical Education, the Arts and Technology Institute, and the Dallas Art Museum are included with your tuition.
Per College Board
The College Board sets all test fees and other charges. Prep work, test and additional books are the responsibility of the student.
During our summer school program, students typically complete one year of a subject in one month. For example, a student can complete one year of Algebra II in one month. This would be a full high school credit. Additional tuition in the amount of $1,000 for a minimum of four weeks during which the student will be enrolled shall be due and payable by May 19, 2017
Computers are required and may be purchased separately. The TI-84 calculator is required for certain classes.
Overnight School Trips
Required day trips and optional overnight trips are covered with the activity fee. Examples are museum field trips and overnight trips to Austin and Houston. Long-term trips such as the Europe Trip in 2014 are optional and paid for by parents. These trips run approximately $1,500 to $4,000.
