Tuition & Financial Aid
An Elite and Affordable College Prep Education You can have it both ways.

Gravitas offers the best value of any online school available today. Gravitas stands out amongst online middle and high school programs for its:

  • strong reputation for excellence in academics and character formation,
  • commitment to live instruction,
  • cultivation of meaningful relationships between students, their peers from around the globe, and their teachers and advisors
  • physical campus allowing students to participate in summer residential programming and campus activities during the school year

As a program of an accredited non-profit private boarding and day school, all tuition collected goes towards developing curriculum and programs and delivering world-class instruction to our students. Online schools that offer synchronous instruction at the college prep level tend to charge two to three times Gravitas's tuition, and many are for-profit schools answering to their investors. Those that are cheaper tend not to offer a true live school experience, relying instead on part-time instructors and asynchronous (i.e. self-paced, offline) coursework to keep costs down.

Gravitas was founded with the mission of making elite education accessible to deserving students regardless of the economic status or geographic location. With roughly 50% of Gravitas students receiving generous need-based financial aid, there is no reason to turn to low-cost alternatives when you can have the best.
