Tuition + Tuition Assistance

Hamlin Robinson School is committed to making its program accessible to families who find it difficult to pay 100% of tuition. To help manage the cost, Hamlin Robinson School has a tuition assistance program that offers funds to qualifying families. Last year, HRS extended tuition assistance to over 24% of its student body. HRS tuition assistance awards range from approximately 10% up to 95% of tuition.

Tuition + Fees

Families can anticipate an annual tuition increase, which supports faculty compensation, curricular enhancements, and facility improvements. The HRS finance committee works diligently to steward financial resources prudently. An annual audit of tuition and fees, which includes a current market survey of other similar programs and independent schools in the Seattle area, helps guide the committee.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance is awarded based on demonstrated financial need. Tuition assistance is made in the form of a grant applied as an actual reduction in the cost of tuition. It does not need to be repaid. Admission decisions are made independently of tuition assistance decisions. 


For the 2024-2025 school year:

  • Tuition assistance applications (for those who wish to apply) are due for current HRS families on January 19, 2024.
  • Tuition assistance applications (for those who wish to apply) are due for new applicant families on February 1, 2024. Applications are welcome after this deadline; however, awards will be made on a funds available basis.
