Tuition &
Financial Aid

Private school is an investment in a child’s intellectual foundation. Tuition and fees at Magellan support enriched academic learning opportunities and tools, support services, technology, and exceptional and warm faculty that provide differentiated learning to each and every student. Magellan provides all school supplies for its students and snacks for our Preschool students every day.

Tuition may be paid in annual, semi-annual or in 10 monthly installments.


Magellan International School is committed to diversity of all kinds, including socioeconomic diversity. As such, our admissions process is “need-blind” – a family’s ability to pay full tuition is not a factor in our admissions decisions.

We recognize that the tuition and fees charged by the school may be beyond the reach of some families. Therefore, the school has a variety of options including tuition payment plans and financial assistance. Families with multiple children enrolling at MIS, program entry fees are only assessed for the first two children in the family.

Each year, Magellan International School awards approximately $700,000 – 800,000 in need-based financial assistance to our students. Between 15-20% of our students receive some type of financial assistance to attend every year. During the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years, Magellan International School has $425,000 in additional funds available to support families impacted by the global pandemic. These resources are available due to the generous donations of our current families in the spring of 2020 and are supplemental to our annual financial aid budget.

Your family is encouraged to apply for financial assistance, and may do so every year your child(ren) is(are) enrolled at Magellan International School. Financial need is evaluated by a third-party (TADS) and awarded based upon need as well as funding available for distribution. You can learn more about the school’s financial aid program by clicking on “Financial Aid Policy” below.
