Tuition and Affordability

Miriam School is committed to supporting families in their goal to educate students with unique learning needs.

No family pays the full cost of a Miriam education, which includes teachers certified in special education, integrated speech/language and occupational therapies, social skills groups, small class sizes, transition services, and a thoroughly personalized approach.

Variable Tuition Program

Variable Tuition is Miriam School and Learning Center's need-based financial assistance program. Reductions in tuition costs are given on a first-come-first-served basis to newly accepted and re-enrolling families – based on available funds. Application and acceptance into the school program is a prerequisite to receiving individual variable tuition information, and new families should contact our Admissions Office to begin the process.

Following an online financial application and review of tax and financial documents, your family’s tuition rate is set within the annual range established by our Board of Trustees based on your unique financial position. Once a family enrolls, parents are also offered convenient payment plan options to control the timing and distribution of their tuition payments throughout the school year.  Variable Tuition is applied for annually and is typically awarded to families making less than $200,000 in income.

  • More than 60% of families received tuition assistance through the Variable Tuition Program for the 2022-23 Academic Year.
  • Miriam awarded over $2.2 million in Variable Tuition reductions in 2022-23.
