The tuition for 2019-2020 is $34,550, which represents less than 60 percent of the total cost of a boy’s education at Roxbury Latin. There are no other charges, except that each boy must provide himself with the necessary books and a few personal athletic supplies. Income from the School’s endowment and contributions to the School’s annual fund-raising drive help keep tuition far below other Independent School tuitions and more affordable for all families (our current tuition is about 68% of other Independent Schools).

Financial Aid

Roxbury Latin is committed to making an education affordable to all admitted students regardless of financial need. The School provides a comprehensive and generous financial aid program, focused on reaching out to families from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Thirty-six percent of students receive financial assistance. All Roxbury Latin financial aid is based exclusively on need; the School does not offer any merit based awards or student loans. Financial aid awards this year range from $1,000 to $34,050. In addition, the School makes every effort to ensure that each boy can participate in activities that complement the program, such as school trips, by awarding additional financial assistance.
