Tuition & Financial Aid

We recognize that a Madeira education is a significant investment in your daughter’s future. While the primary responsibility for financing a student’s education rests with her family, each year Madeira commits more than $3.5 million in need-based financial aid grants and merit-based scholarships to 40% of our student body.
