Tuition and fees account for approximately 90 percent of the funds needed to operate the school. The balance is provided by parents, alumni, and friends contributing to the Puma Fund, by proceeds of the annual Parent Council Auction, and by distributions from the endowment. The following tuition and fees are for the 2017-2018 school year.
