• Tuition

    To apply for enrollment in one of Clayton's schools through the Personal Tuition Program, please contact Julie Engelhard at 314-854-6023. Students are accepted on a space-available basis. At the end of the open enrollment period, if the District has more applications than spaces available at a specific grade level and none of the remaining students meet the criteria for priority consideration, a lottery process will be used to select students for enrollment. Students not selected for enrollment in the lottery will be placed on the waiting list. This process is detailed in Board of Education Regulation 2240. Priority consideration for placement will be given (in the following order) to:

    1. Siblings of currently enrolled students.
    2. Students whose grandparents live within the School District of Clayton’s boundaries.
    3. Students whose parent(s)/guardian(s) work within the School District of Clayton’s boundaries.

     Important dates and deadlines for application for the upcoming school year are:

    • March 31 - Enrollment Period Closes
    • July 15 - Notification of enrollment status

     Tuition rates for the 2022-2023 school year are:

    Grades K-5: $18,300
    Grades 6-12: $24,400

    Application Materials:

    Completed application forms should be sent to the Office of Student Services, #2 Mark Twain Circle, Clayton, MO 63105. Students wishing to accept placement must notify the District within two weeks of receiving their acceptance letter. Tuition-paying students, once accepted, may remain in the District until they graduate, as long as they abide by District policies and yearly tuition is paid.

    Again, thank you for considering the School District of Clayton. We look forward to the opportunity to fulfill the academic needs and educational dreams of your child.
