Tuition & Affordability

We believe all qualified students should have access to the unique educational opportunities at Blake.

Our students have extraordinary educational opportunities. We recognize that, although it is an excellent investment in your child's future, a Blake education represents an expense that may be beyond some families' reach. That's why we are committed to ensuring Blake is affordable for qualified students. Approximately 23 percent of our students receive need-based tuition assistance.

See Tuition & Fees, below, for details about tuition and fees within each division. Visit our Tuition Assistance page for information about financial assistance.

Tuition & Fees

Please note that standard amounts listed for each division include tuition and lunch costs. For an additional fee, we provide the following optional services: afternoon pre-kindergarten, Friday afternoon kindergarten, and extended-day care (pre-kindergarten through grade five). Families who receive financial assistance may be able to receive assistance for these additional costs.

Families who receive financial assistance may be able to receive assistance for transportation too. Busing and shuttle services are also available for an additional fee. Go here for more details, contact Mike Feinberg at 952-988-3457, or email transportation@blake.org.

As you contemplate Blake's tuition and fee structure, we hope you'll consider the value of investing in an outstanding education. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you to make this belief a reality. Please call 952-988-3422 and ask to speak to our Director of Admissions and Financial Assistance today.

It's important to note that all of our financial assistance awards are based on demonstrated need — the calculated difference between the amount a family can be expected to contribute to the cost of their student's education and the amount of annual tuition, books and fees.
