Tuition & Costs

"When we first started the Linsly Admissions process, we were asking 'How can we afford this for our children.' After visiting the school and meeting with faculty and administration, we changed our thought process to 'How can we not afford this for our children.' The value at Linsly lies in the relationships forged on a daily basis and the exposure to classmates from all over the world."

- Joe Giovengo, Linsly parent

"Linsly is a community where everyone takes the time to help student tap into their individual potential, both in and out of the classroom. The teachers genuinely care for the students, and our son's successes have been reflected in his honors reports. I can't say enough about the return on investment we have seen in five years at Linsly."

The comment above from one of our current parents goes to the heart of why our faculty, advisors, coaches, and staff come to work every day: to bring out the very best in all of our students and to give them a "leg-up" as they realize their future potential. That's because Linsly remains deeply committed to providing students with an academically challenging curriculum, inspiring lifelong learning, providing leadership opportunities, promoting values-rich character development, and is dedicated to a well-rounded college preparatory experience. The proof is evident because, in addition to our exceptional college placement record, Linsly students graduate as well-rounded citizens and civic-minded members of society.
