Please note all payment options require the 10% non-refundable deposit payable to Choate Rosemary Hall on the date specified on your enrollment contract.

Tuition Refund Plan

All Choate families are automatically enrolled in The Tuition Refund Plan developed by TuitionNet. The Tuition Refund Plan will pay benefits (subject to its terms, conditions and limitations) to the family of a student who, for various reasons, is unable to continue attending the school. 

Beyond the Classroom Fund

All Choate students, regardless of whether they receive financial aid, are eligible to apply for support from the Beyond the Classroom Fund. The fund's purpose is to support a student’s full participation in the Choate experience.

To ease the financial burden of participation in distinct, valuable opportunities that are associated with, and enhance, the student's academic, athletic and extracurricular involvements, a student may apply to this fund to cover non-tuition associated costs.

At the discretion of the Dean of Students, the Fund may also be used to provide financial support to a student facing emergency circumstances.
