Resetting Tuition

Last fall, Kiski announced a “tuition reset” which lowered our tuition from $61,300 to $48,500 for the 2020-21 school year. In this session, we’ll examine the financial analysis and modeling that informed our decision, how the reset was messaged to our constituents, and how it was marketed to new families. Plus, we’ll share the results of one admissions cycle and next steps for sustaining this new model.
