DOMESTIC TUITION 2019-20: $19,300.

There are many options for families to fund their tuition including town tuition and financial aid.

Families residing in in Manchester, Rupert, Pawlet, Danby, or other towns that do not have a municipal middle or high school, a significant portion of tuition is paid for by the town.

In the spirit of community, Long Trail accepts the Dorset town tuition rate for grades 9-12 as the amount Dorset residents will pay for their child’s high school tuition.

Financial Aid

LTS assists over 60 percent of the student body in meeting educational costs based on demonstrated financial need. We utilize TADS, a third party secure, on-line, resource to help us evaluate all of the financial aid requests.  Families apply by creating a PFS (Parental Financial Statement) at TADS, which then estimates the amount a family can contribute to school expenses.

Prospective students must apply and be accepted before they will be considered for financial aid.

Begin this process by creating a secure log-in account here.
