TPS’ mission is to provide a superior learning environment that expects and celebrates academic performance, character development, and dedication to community.
Tuxedo Park School values a diverse student population from various backgrounds. Therefore, we work hard to ensure that qualified students from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds have the opportunity to attend Tuxedo Park School. As a result, the school offers tuition assistance to families who could not otherwise afford the full cost of a TPS education. In fact, Tuxedo Park School offers approximately $1.2 million in tuition assistance to approximately 48% of enrolled students in PreK through 9th grade. Therefore, even if the full tuition seems unaffordable, we encourage new families to consider TPS and to explore what options are available for need-based tuition assistance.
