Affording The Gooden School

While the primary responsibility for financing education rests with each family, The Gooden School works to make it possible for families who truly want a Gooden education for their child/children to be able to attend our school.  Families should apply for tuition assistance only after using as much of their own financial resources as possible.

Tuition assistance is awarded on an annual basis to families who demonstrate need based on the required forms listed on The Gooden School Application Process page of the website. Families must apply each year for assistance. Decisions are based on the confidential information submitted and are considered within the context of our tuition assistance budget for the year.

Returning families must submit all required forms for the 2023-2024 School Year to Clarity Schools by January 10, 2024. New Families must submit all required forms for the 2023-2024 School Year to Clarity Schools by February 9, 2024.
