Tuition and Financial Aid Information    
PMFS tuition rates are set annually by the School Committee, the governing board of the school. Holding tuition increases to a minimum is a matter of priority for the School Committee, balanced with its responsibility for the long-term health of the school. In the past 5 years annual tuition increases have been around 5%.

We appreciate the investment that our families make to provide a strong foundation for their child's future through their commitment to becoming part of the Plymouth Meeting Friends School community.

Financing a PMFS Education
PMFS works closely with families in attempt to ensure finances are not a barrier to attending our program. We welcome open conversations in effort to make enrollment accessible. We offer need-based financial aid to help families afford tuition. Financial aid applications are due in February for the following school year; recipients must re-apply annually. 

Families are encouraged to explore financial assistance from supporting organizations. Each has its own eligibility and application requirements:
