Affording TSS

We recognize the financial commitment involved in enrolling a child at The Southport School (TSS). The Board of Directors and school leadership work hard to keep tuition as affordable as possible.


Tuition for the 2023-2024 school year: $69,500 (non-refundable deposit of $15,000 required)

Application fee: $125

The tuition is inclusive of all programs and services, outside of extracurricular trips, and includes lunch (Monday through Thursday) and a daily snack.



Each year, we offer need-based tuition assistance as determined by the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS). Approximately 25% of our families receive some sort of financial aid.

To apply for financial aid, fill out the online SSS form

Families who don’t qualify for need-based aid often explore other means to finance tuition. These can include:

  • Support from the student’s public school district
  • Home equity loans
  • Personal loans from outside companies or from family members
