Tuition and Fees

At Rivendell, we provide students with a strong academic foundation in a creative, nurturing environment.

Explanation of Tuition Payments and Retainer

The yearly tuition rate is paid in ten installments. The first of the ten payments is the "retainer" which officially reserves your child's spot at Rivendell. This payment is non-refundable and is due June 1st, or upon enrollment. The remaining nine payments are charged monthly from September through May.
