Tuition and Financial Assistance

RHP’s tuition is calculated to provide the highest quality of educational programs, retain the most talented teachers available, and maintain affordability for a broad spectrum of families. The 2018 – 2019 schedule of tuition and fees is detailed in the Resources box on the right-hand side of this page.

Financial assistance, otherwise known as Flexible Tuition at RHP, is a need-based program designed to help qualifying families afford the cost of tuition. Any student interested in Rolling Hills Prep School should apply for admission regardless of the family's financial situation. Because the school is committed to a diverse student body from varying backgrounds, Rolling Hills Prep School has a strong need-based financial aid program that provides flexible tuition to families who otherwise cannot afford the full tuition cost.

It is our continuing goal that economic standing should not be a factor in admission to Rolling Hills Prep School. We encourage families to apply for flexible tuition, and many families receive some form of tuition adjustment. RHP follows the guidelines for tuition adjustment set forth by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Tuition adjustments are made on the basis of need as determined by the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) in Princeton, New Jersey.


The admission decision is treated separately from the flexible tuition award process, and the admission committee must accept the application for admission before the flexible tuition award process can take place. This is in accordance with the NAIS Principles of Good Practice.

In most cases, the admission acceptance letter is sent first and the enrollment contract containing the amount awarded in flexible tuition follows under separate cover. Please contact the admission staff if you have any questions about your flexible tuition application status.

A non-profit organization, RHP admits students of any race, color, religious affiliation, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students. We do not discriminate in our admission policies, tuition assistance programs, or other school-administered programs.

Complete confidentiality throughout the flexible tuition application process is assured.


First submit an application to RHP online. Starting on October 2, go to and you will be guided through the process of creating a Parents' Financial Statement (PFS).

Your documents will be handled with the utmost level of security. To read more about SSS's document security, go to
