Our Indexed Tuition program brings the cost of a Thaden education within reach for a broad range of families in Northwest Arkansas. Instead of paying a fixed rate, each family's contribution toward the cost of a Thaden education is individually determined or "indexed" on the basis of its financial resources. All families, including those that pay the maximum tuition, pay well below the actual cost of a Thaden education.

$80,000 to $100,000 $2,600 to $5,200

$200,000 to $220,000 $19,800 to $22,900
$220,000 and above $22,900 to $26,800*
*A family with a gross annual income that exceeds $220,000 with multiple children attending Thaden School can expect to pay more than the single maximum tuition amount (which is calculated per child). In no instance would a family pay more than a single maximum tuition per child.
