Thank you for considering The Overlake School!

Overlake’s 2024-25 tuition for all grades is $45,530. The Overlake School is dedicated to helping families afford this educational choice. To that end, we have several different payment options and a financial aid program for those who qualify.

Interested students who may need financial assistance to attend Overlake are encouraged to apply for admission. Our community’s strength depends upon our ability to attract a student body from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. Overlake is committed to enrolling those students who have shown achievement and promise in scholarship, leadership and character, regardless of financial need.

During the academic year, Overlake awarded over $1.5M in need-based financial aid and scholarships. Overlake’s financial aid is based entirely on financial need. We do not offer financial aid grants for merit or athletics.

Financial aid is critical to Overlake’s mission, providing access to families who would not otherwise be able to afford tuition. Our Financial Aid program extends beyond the cost of tuition. We want all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, to have a full educational experience and take advantage of all that Overlake has to offer.  

If you have any questions about the process, please contact us.

Applying for Financial Assistance

The School’s financial aid program is designed to make an Overlake education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. Overlake partners with Clarity software platform to facilitate the financial aid application process to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.

The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return at any time.
