Making the right educational choice for your child is a big decision and we know how stressful it can be. At Hill-Murray, we are committed to making a quality, personalized education accessible for all families.
If you are concerned about affording a Hill-Murray, don’t be. Hill-Murray tailors our tuition to match the financial situation of your family. This individualized approach, called Variable Tuition, allows us the flexibility to make Hill-Murray affordable for families. Unlike traditional financial aid that only offsets tuition costs, Variable Tuition focuses on what each individual family can contribute toward tuition, allowing us to adjust their tuition costs accordingly.
In fact, no student pays 100% of the cost of a Hill-Murray education. Tuition has already been supplemented thanks to our generous donors, the Pioneer Premier Auction and the Hill-Murray Annual Fund.
We are committed to providing Variable Tuition so we can share the investment in your child’s education and we welcome the unique gifts and talents your student will bring to the Hill-Murray community!
