Support the School

As a non-profit independent school, The New School relies on a combination of tuition revenue, grants, and charitable donations to fulfill our mission and enhance the educational experience of our students.

Through financial donations from families like you, we are able to maintain our level or educational excellence while ensuring our programs remain as affordable as possible. By donating to the school, you are helping to provide many enrichment activities and learning experiences that tuition revenue alone cannot cover. Your help also makes it possible for families who are in need to attend the school.
