Affording A Caedmon Education:
Our Flexible Tuition Program & Payment Options

We are so appreciative of the support we receive from the Flexible Tuition program. It makes it possible for our family to be a part of the Caedmon community. As parents, we all want the best resources and the best match in terms of pedagogical approach for our children. Because there is support for tuition that takes our financial situation into consideration, we are free to have access to the best educational opportunities for our children. Flexible Tuition encourages families from diverse backgrounds to apply to and attend Caedmon, resulting in a rich and diverse learning environment for everyone. Our son absolutely loves going to school at Caedmon. He is challenged and encouraged, making good friends, and getting the best education possible. Without Flexible Tuition he would not have this opportunity. Thank you!

We want to make a Caedmon education accessible! Participating in our Flexible Tuition Program or utilizing our extended 10-payment plan are two examples of our devotion to a socioeconomically diverse community at The Caedmon School.


The Caedmon School offers the following payment options to accommodate the needs of our families:

  • Single Payment
  • Two Payments
  • 10 Payment Plan (includes a modest 2.5% financing fee)


  • 17% of Caedmon families pay below full tuition
  • 15% of operating budget is devoted to Flex Tuition
