Indexed Tuition

Upper school students walking through the Arcade

At Stuart Hall School, we believe the cost of tuition should not deter a qualified student from attending our School. We therefore offer a personalized, indexed approach to tuition setting. Your student’s tuition will be based on your family’s income and expenses and determined through a financial application process administered by FAST, an Independent School Management tuition service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Scholarship Opportunities

In addition to Indexed Tuition, Stuart Hall offers several scholarships to help offset the cost of tuition for eligible students. 

The Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation Scholarship

The Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation was established by Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans, the wife of one of the original bottlers of Coca-Cola. Mrs. Whitehead went on to lead the Coca-Cola Bottling Company, and she dedicated herself to causes important to her, saying, “I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” One of Mrs. Whitehead’s passions was
education, and she established the Foundation to support the education of deserving female students with financial need.
