Tuition & Tuition Assistance

At Harker we are committed to providing the most comprehensive academic and extracurricular programs and services possible for our students from every socioeconomic background. Our team will work with families to make Harker accessible and affordable for all.

2020-21 Harker Tuition Rates

At Harker, lunch is included in the tuition for kindergarten through grade 12. Extended care (7 a.m.-6 p.m.) is included in the tuition for K-12. As with most independent schools, tuition covers only a portion of the actual cost of each child's education. The difference is raised through contributions from our entire Harker community to the annual fund, which enables Harker to maintain its margin of excellence and offer its renowned student programs. Tuition for each year is determined in February.

2020-21 Tuition
Kindergarten-Grade 5 $41,400
Grades 6-8 $49,300
Grades 9-12 $53,800

Tuition Assistance

For students enrolled in K-12

We recognize the cost of an independent school education is a considerable investment and each family’s ability to meet tuition costs will vary. We encourage families who have a need and believe Harker may be a good fit to consider applying for financial assistance. Financial assistance awards are based on need, and we work with families to help make a Harker education affordable for them. The financial assistance application process is independent from the admission application process, though the two must be done simultaneously if a family anticipates needing aid.

Tuition Assistance Process

  1. Request assistance application packet from Harker.
  2. Submit necessary documents to SSS (School and Student Services).
  3. The financial assistance committee reviews the report from SSS, and mails notification in mid-March.
  4. Harker grants an award for the difference between the family’s contribution and the cost of tuition. Many factors contribute to the determination of each family’s financial aid award. We welcome any questions you may have about the financial aid process.
