Tuition & Financial Aid

We are committed to making tuition affordable for families of all financial backgrounds. The cost of a Bank Street education should never hinder families seeking to apply. Every year, Bank Street designates a portion of its operating budget to support families with demonstrated financial need. We’re focused on ensuring tuition is within reach for all families through our robust financial aid packages.

What is Progressive Education?

At Bank Street, education begins in joy and wonder and encourages children to find meaning behind what they’re learning. Our students grow into creators, thinkers, and problem-solvers who are thoughtful, curious, and eager to learn.
