Affording a Mayfield Education

You want the absolute best for your child—so do we. At Mayfield, our students are everything. Our primary purpose is to see your child be their best self—helping them develop a love of learning, discover their unique gifts, and gain the skills and confidence needed in our rapidly changing world.  And it will all take place in a joyful community with caring teachers and the space to grow with intention and kindness.

Financial Assistance

Choosing the right school for your child is the first step—finances are the next.

We understand that choosing an independent school education for your child is a significant financial commitment. Let’s work together to provide your child with an exceptional education.

Mayfield offers need-based financial assistance. All families who are applying or continuing at are encouraged to apply for financial assistance. We commit more than one million dollars in need-based financial aid each year to more than 20% of the student population with awards that range from 10 to 97 percent of tuition.

The financial assistance process and the application process occur at the same time and are independent of one another. The process is confidential. You must complete the financial aid application before you can be considered for tuition assistance. We encourage all applicants to not wait for notice of acceptance to apply for financial aid. In doing so, the available monies may already be allocated. 

In the 2023-2024 school year, Mayfield provided financial assistance to 20 percent of our students, with awards that range from 10 to 97 percent of tuition.

Determining an annual assistance award is directly tied to establishing the demonstrated financial need of each family. While family income is a significant factor, we recognize that there are many other indicators to consider. To help evaluate demonstrated need, Mayfield processes all applications through Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST).

Tuition Payment Options

You have four payment options at Mayfield that are outlined below. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

A 10 percent deposit is required each year to reserve a space. This payment is due when you enroll or re-enroll, and is applied to tuition in the new academic year.

Tuition may be paid using one of four payment plans:
  • Annual payment (100% due on August 1)
  • Semi-annual payments (60% on August 1 and 40% on January 1)
  • 7-Pay Monthly (Monthly payments August - February)
  • 10-Pay Monthly (Monthly payments May - February)
