We use SmartTuition Service for all tuition payments. There are multiple payment options available and can be found online at:

There is a one time yearly $50.00 fee for using Smart Tuition.


Additional fees can include some field trip costs, aftercare fees, and after-school activities.


Families with two or more children in Kalama and above who are paying full tuition qualify for a sibling discount. The discount is $250 for the second child and $500 for the third child and any children thereafter. Families on Financial Aid or other tuition discounts are not eligible for the sibling discount.


A limited number of Merit Scholarships are available from grade 6 through grade 8. These scholarships come with a 90% tuition remission and are available to students entering Gardner for the first time in grade 6.


Financial Aid is available for families with children in Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Financial Aid is done via the SSS Financial Aid system that is run by NAIS. The maximum award given for Kindergarten is 25% tuition assistance and for 1st through 8th, 50% is the maximum award of assistance.


For questions about financial aid, scholarships and admissions, please contact our Admissions Coordinator Jessie Mohandessi at for more information.
