The CSSW Board of Directors has set the annual tuition for the 2023-2024 school year at $850 per student. To provide historical context, this is only the 6th tuition increase in the last 23 years. In the past year, CSSW has experienced significant increases in our rental, insurance and staff compensation rates, all reflecting prevailing market conditions.
In addition to the $25 per new student fee (if applicable) and the $25 Parents Association fee per student, there is a $25 / student materials fee. Please note that for all students in 8th Grade and above, the materials fee is $65 / student which reflects the costs of the textbook series we use in the Upper School.
In order to streamline registration for the 3rd period culture classes, a listing of each culture course is provided along with any required fees and requirements. Changing culture courses after the first two weeks of the school year will require the permission of the teachers involved. Any culture class in which there are less than five students may be withdrawn. Students in Pre-K and Kindergarten classes join a combined 3rd period class.
In order to encourage all families to register their children as soon as possible, CSSW will offer a discounted tuition amount of $700 (plus all applicable fees) for students whose completed Registration Form plus full remittance of tuition and fees are received by our office ON OR BEFORE April 15, 2023.
WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE ALL RETURNING FAMILIES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EARLY REGISTRATION. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT THERE IS A $100 ADMINISTRATIVE FEE FOR ANY SUBSEQUENT CANCELLATIONS
In addition to reserving your place in the regular language class, another advantage of early registration is that we will give priority for indicated preferences for culture classes on a first- come first-serve basis according to date of receipt of completed registrations. We will give careful consideration to language class assignments based on the best interests of the individual student and the class as a whole but we cannot guarantee a place in any specific class.
Thank you for you cooperation in this important procedure. Please be sure that ALL registration information (including telephone and email contact data) is complete and accurate.
Completed Registration Forms with full remittance can be delivered BY HAND to the School Office or mailed to: CSSW, PO Box 278, Hartsdale, NY 10530.
