Girls Military School Cost

Girls military school cost varies depending on the terms. This article offers girls military school cost approximations based on different situations. It also discusses the variation in military school cost and categorizes the costs you may expect from girls schools.

The cost for a girl to attend a military school depends on a number of factors. First, a summer program will, obviously, be less expensive than a full year program. In addition, since there are relatively few options for girls military schools, it is likely that there will be travel expenses. In addition, girls at a military school will need money for personal expenses and will have to pay for uniforms, books, medical appointments, insurance, haircuts, etc. There may also be additional lab fees for special classes and field trips. This article reviews the costs that include tuition and fees only, not transportation or money spent by students by choice.

Variations in Cost

There are several choices that families can make that will affect the cost of girls military school education. One is that a day program, if available, will be less expensive than a boarding option. Some schools offer a five-day boarding program rather than a seven-day boarding program, but this will depend on how close the school is to your home. A third factor is that there may be a sibling discount. Fourth, schools may offer a reduced fee if the entire tuition is paid early. Fifth, some schools may offer reduced tuition for state residents. A final factor that will affect cost is financial aid. Most girls military schools offer some kind of financial aid, which may offset the costs, if your child is eligible.

  • Tuition

As you look over these schools, you should be aware of several things:

  • Most websites are not forthcoming about all charges: on some, you can only discover the application fee by downloading an application.
  • Different schools handle charges differently. At one girls military school, textbooks are rented. At others, they are considered part of student expenses over and above tuition and board. Fees may or may not include haircuts, uniform dry-cleaning, insurance, etc.
  • Check for rules on when deposits must be paid and how much is due: the deposit is often due a number of months before the school year begins.
