We use SmartTuition Service for all tuition payments. There are multiple payment options available. There is a one time yearly $50.00 fee for using Smart Tuition.


The Gardner School seeks to minimize additional costs to families during the school year. Additional fees may include overnight trip costs, special activities off campus, aftercare fees, and optional 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.


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 of assistance is 50%.


For questions about affording The Gardner School, please contact our Director of Enrollment Jessie Mohandessi at for more information.
