Education is an investment.
It is an investment in your child’s future and it is a financial investment that requires a big commitment. We understand that and know the decision to attend a private school does not come lightly.
While Ravenscroft tuition ranges from $10,290 to $23,445, the average cost of educating a Ravenscroft student is much higher. Thankfully, our parents, grandparents, alumni and other donors continue investing in the future of Ravenscroft to offset the difference through philanthropic efforts like Ravenscroft Annual Fund and Endowments.

Effective with the 2017-2018 academic year, Ravenscroft will offer sibling discounts to all families paying full tuition with more than one child enrolled in the School. Families receiving financial assistance are not eligible. Those discounts will be as follows:
|Second child enrolled||1.5% discount on one tuition (higher tuition will be discounted)|
|Third child enrolled||2.5% discount on one tuition (higher tuition will be discounted)|
|Fourth child enrolled||3.5% discount on one tuition (higher tuition will be discounted)|
|Graduation Fee (Seniors only)||$160|
|Academic Skills (optional program)||$3,300 Annually|
|New Family Capital Fee* (alumni families are exempt)|
A “new family” is defined as one who does not have a child currently enrolled in this School. The New Family Capital Fee is to be paid when a family enrolls its child(ren) and is not to be confused with the Enrollment Deposit which is applied toward the total annual tuition. The New Family Capital Fee is a one-time-only charge and is independent of the number of children enrolled in the School. The New Family Capital Fee covers maintenance and improvement of our facilities, including work such as painting, landscaping, carpet replacement, and classroom, playground, and field repairs. Ravenscroft Alumni families will be exempt from the New Family Capital Fee.
If withdrawn after June 15th, 2018 and prior to the opening of School.
Note: Included in tuition is the cost of curricular trips. Curricular trips are defined as trips that enhance the curriculum and include the entire grade. Tuition does not include Fine Arts trips or international travel opportunities. Additional fees are charged for optional Private Lessons, Transportation, and some consumable instructional materials. Please call the Business Office at 919-848-6464 for further information if you need assistance with these charges.
You can now find our admissions team in the new Ravenscroft Welcome Center, located in the A.E. Finley Foundation building, located at 1151 Newton Road.
Providing access to Ravenscroft, regardless of financial means, is a priority for us.

As a matter of fact, our average need-based grant is approximately $12,000.
