Tuition and Financial Aid
Harpeth Hall offers a transformative education to girls and young women grades 5-12.
Harpeth Hall seeks to enroll intellectually curious and community-minded students regardless of a family's ability to pay. Seventeen percent of the student body will receive over $2.2 million in need-based financial aid for the 2022-2023 school year, with an average of 96% demonstrated need met. The average grant is $18,892. Harpeth Hall offers need-based financial aid and is need-blind for admission. Admission decisions are made separately from financial aid determinations. Families receive an estimated financial aid package at the time of their admission decision.
Harpeth Hall educates young women to think critically, to lead confidently, and to live honorably.
Beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, Harpeth Hall no longer charges any mandatory fees outside of tuition.

The Olivia Fund
This fund was established anonymously in 2001 by a Harpeth Hall parent in honor of his young daughter, who was in her second year at the school. Its purpose is to help students and their families with expenses that are important to an inclusive school experience but are not covered in financial aid grants for tuition, such as class trips, books, and various extracurricular activities.
The Adeline Fund
This fund was established anonymously in 2017 by Harpeth Hall parents in honor of their daughter to provide funding for girls who demonstrate financial need so that they may participate fully in the life of the school beyond the classroom.
“The difference the school and the faculty have made in the lives of my children is priceless. The legacy of the support to allow my daughters to attend Harpeth Hall will leave its mark on my family for generations to come. Thank you for believing in my children.”

“There are not enough words to describe the immense love and encouragement that permeates throughout Harpeth Hall's campus. To put it in the simplest way, Harpeth Hall is like the book you don't want to put down and never will.”
- Zora Young '19
"We can hardly believe our daughter is headed to college soon. The opportunities ahead of her would not have been possible without the generosity of Harpeth Hall donors, teachers, staff, and all the students that welcomed her into their lives."
