The tuition for a CITYterm semester is one-half the annual boarding tuition at The Masters School, plus a transportation fee to help offset the costs of travel to, from, and within New York City. The cost of attending CITYterm in 2013-2014 is $26,840 which includes the local transportation fee of $600. We also require students to open a $550 school account to cover book purchases, optional trips and cash withdrawals. Students who take good advantage of the many free activities available in New York City typically find that the money in their bookstore account lasts them the entire semester.
We recognize the cost of attending an excellent program like CITYterm is difficult for many families to afford. We provide need-based financial aid for approximately 1/3 of our students and many of our partner schools match this aid with funds of their own.
So that we may fairly assess a family’s ability to pay for a CITYterm semester, we ask families to file Parent’s Financial Statements (PFS) with School and Student Services by NAIS. Families who wish to apply for aid should indicate their desire to do so on the application and call the CITYterm office with any additional questions. Our SSS school code is 4948. We ask that families file their PFS prior by February 15.
