Tuition and Expenses

The Mountain School tuition matches that of Milton Academy. For 2016-17, the tuition for the semester (which includes room and board) is $27,700. Milton Academy will invoice tuition in early August for the fall semester and late December for the spring semester. It will be due in 30 days from invoice date. For questions about billing or gradual payment, please contact our business manager Doug Austin at

The deposit sent with your enrollment agreement is used to establish an incidental account to cover the cost of books, entertainment, and miscellaneous expenses. If there is a balance at the end of the semester, we will refund it to you.

We require that students are covered with health insurance of some kind; a half-year plan can be obtained through Milton Academy, which also offers elective accident and tuition-refund insurance. For information about these options, please email
