New York Tuition

Typically, a family that joins HWIS makes a long-term commitment to immersion education, understanding that it takes several years to develop biliteracy, and that the cognitive benefits increase with the number of years spent in immersion. 

The setting of tuition is undertaken each year in collaboration with the Board and the Head of School. It encompasses the intersection of three considerations:

  • Providing resources to address the mission and vision of the school
  • Ensuring the financial sustainability of the school
  • Making HWIS accessible to as many families as possible

Note: Tuition fees do not include: extended care, after-school enrichment, summer camp, and international travel.
