Tuition and Affordability at Gann: Our Approach

Our institutional commitment to affordability makes it possible for individuals of all income levels to attend our school. Gann Academy’s tuition is indexed to family income, and tuition for the 2022-2023 school year ranges from $10,000- $50,950. We are proud to award more than $4.6 million annually in aid to our students through four tuition support programs: Traditional Financial Aid, Within Reach, Pioneer Program, and Professional Partner Program.  

We understand that each family’s financial circumstance is unique, and we look forward to building a strong relationship with your family. Please contact Amy Chandler-Nelson, Director of Business Operations, to start a conversation today about financial accessibility.

Tuition Support Programs

Learn more about our four tuition support programs below.

Within Reach

The Within Reach program provides straightforward, dependable, and meaningful financial support for families across a wide economic spectrum. This program is designed specifically for families who have Adjusted Gross Incomes (AGI) between $150,000 and $600,000 and net assets below $500,000 (excluding primary residence, qualified retirement accounts, and 529 plans), and who pay less than $20,000 in property taxes. 
Within Reach offers predictable tuition for four years, scaled to family income. The application process takes into account tuition that a family pays for siblings that attend other K-12 Jewish day school(s), therapeutic or special education school(s), and undergraduate higher education institution(s).
Visit the Within Reach page to learn more about this program. For a look into your family's personal tuition scale, utilize the Tuition Calculator included on the Within Reach page and below. 

Traditional Financial Aid

Traditional Financial Aid provides financial support for families who wish to have a comprehensive assessment of their individual financial circumstances. The award determination is based on detailed income and asset information that families provide. A committee evaluates all applications submitted through School and Student Services (SSS) to determine a family’s tuition assessment, and information is kept confidential. Gann guarantees that all families who qualify for traditional need-based financial aid will receive a minimum award of $5,000 per child.

Professional Partner Program

The Gann community is enriched by the active engagement of our Jewish communal leaders and their families. The Professional Partner Program is for families where at least one parent is a full-time Jewish communal professional. Recipients receive a tuition discount of $10,000 per child per year. For 2022-2023, students in the Professional Partner Program pay tuition of $40,950.

Pioneer Program

We offer the Pioneer Program for students who are joining Gann Academy from public schools to help make the transition to private school easier. Many families take advantage of the outstanding public schools in the greater Boston area for elementary and/or middle school, and then find their educational home at Gann for high school. Students coming to Gann from public schools are critical to the vibrancy of our Gann community. 

Any Gann applicant to the ninth or tenth grade who attended public school since at least sixth grade and who does not have a sibling who has attended Gann may apply for the program. As part of the Pioneer Program: 

  • In ninth grade, Pioneer families will receive a $20,000 financial aid award (or are welcome to apply to another tuition support program that may result in a more generous award).

  • In tenth grade, Pioneer families will receive a $10,000 award (or are welcome to apply to any other tuition support program). 

  • In subsequent years, Pioneer families are welcome to apply to any other tuition support program.

Fees & Payment Plans

Gann’s tuition includes athletic uniforms and Shabbatonim. For students traveling to Israel, there is an additional assessment which is highly subsidized and linked to family income. Tuition may be paid annually, semi-annually, or in ten monthly payments.
