Tuition and Financial Assistance

Many parents find a Helios educational experience invaluable for their child’s future and well-being.

Thank you for considering Helios School for your child. We realize that investing in an independent school education requires careful consideration and financial planning for some families. Helios seeks to admit gifted students regardless of family resources.

Tuition for 2021-2022 school year 

Helios and most independent schools raise tuition every year by 3%-6% - both to keep up with the cost of living and to maintain competitive salaries for our faculty.

Lower School:
Tuition: $34,750

Middle  School:
Tuition: $36,750

Financial Assistance

Helios determines admission decisions separately from the financial aid process.

We encourage parents to apply for financial assistance if needed. Financial aid helps close the gap between tuition and a family's ability to pay. The award amount is calculated using School and Student Service (SSS) application and is based on current financial needs. Award ranges between 10 - 99% of tuition. We do not give merit-based awards at this time. 

Create an account and apply for financial aid at https://www.solutionsbysss.com. Helios SSS code is 147376.

More information about applying for financial aid can be found at Family Resource Center. Please contact SSS for any questions about the portal and admissions@heliosns.org with any questions about the Financial Aid application process.


Helios School admits students of any race, age, color, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at Helios School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and athletic administered programs.


 

"We wish we had learned many years earlier that highly gifted learners require a substantially different approach than what traditional schools, focused on grade and test score achievement, can offer."
