Tuition and Fees

Tuition Aid

Friends School of Minnesota is committed to an economically diverse student body and welcomes the opportunity to provide financial support to families who need it to help send their children to the school. About 22% of our gross tuition is devoted to tuition aid and that money supports 40% of our student body. Learn more about tuition aid.
