Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition

Tuition covers the cost of attending Khan Lab School as well as our optional Extended Day clubs and courses that occur from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. each day. Tuition also includes school supplies, devices such as Chromebooks and iPads, and frequent field trips. In Extended Day, we provide programs and classes taught by teachers as well as a wide range of student-led (teacher-mentored) clubs such as Drama, Cross Country, Yearbook, and Economics.

  • Independence Levels 1-4 (Lower School): $29,350

The enrollment fee is $750.

Financial Aid

KLS is dedicated to fostering a school community that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. One way we make this a reality is by providing grant-based financial aid to families who qualify. 

Our financial aid program is based on a family’s demonstrated need and our available funds. We encourage families who are interested in being considered for financial aid to complete an application though TADS by the January 17, 2020, priority application deadline. Financial aid applications received after this date may be considered if funds are still available. 

The first step in applying for financial aid at KLS is to create a TADS account. You will use this account to upload all of your financial aid application components. The most important aspect of the financial aid process is meeting deadlines.

Note for divorced or separated parents, or never-married parents living apart: a separate financial aid application must be submitted for each household. We will not share one parent’s financial information with the other.

To be considered for financial aid at KLS, the following required documents must be submitted to your TADS account by the following deadlines:

Friday, January 17, 2020

  • 2018 Federal Tax Return: Form(s) 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ with all supporting schedules
  • 2018 Federal Income Statement: Form(s) W-2 or 1099
  • If applicable, Federal Business Tax Returns: Form(s) 1065, 1120, 1120s, or K-1
  • Optional Letter of Family Circumstance: If a letter of explanation would help us better understand your situation, please include it with the rest of your financial aid application documents uploaded to your TADS account.

March 1, 2020

  • 2019 Federal Tax Return: Form(s) 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ with all supporting schedules.*
  • 2019 Federal Income Statement: Form(s) W-2 or 1099
  • If applicable, Federal Business Tax Returns: Form(s) 1065, 1120, 1120s, or K-1

*If final 2019 tax documents are not available by March 1, 2020, an informed estimate is sufficient as we realize all information required for filing may not be available. However, your award will not be finalized until we receive your final tax forms.

Financial aid decisions will be released by email on Thursday, March 19, 2020 with admission decisions.

Application Fee Waiver

When applying to KLS, a waiver for the application fee ($100) is also available for families experiencing financial hardship. Please email admissions@khanlabschool.org to request an application fee waiver.
