Pennfield Launches the Making It Possible Initiative

By November 1, 2019 January 24th, 2020 News

Making It Possible is a new initiative aimed at making a Pennfield education accessible to more Rhode Island and Massachusetts families.

Our Board of Trustees unanimously voted to approve the initiative, which will reset tuition rates for the 2020-2021 school year. “At a time when educational costs are continuing to rise, we’re proud to be responsive to the needs of our community by making Pennfield more accessible, and by being a leader in addressing this need,” says Ted Karousos, Chair of the Board of Trustees. This exciting initiative will also kick off Pennfield’s 50th anniversary celebration next year.

As an increasing number of independent schools across the country are re-evaluating their pricing models, The Pennfield School is helping to lead the way here in Rhode Island. “We understand that enrollment often requires a financial sacrifice, but we are optimistic that this initiative will enable more families to rethink the possibility of a Pennfield education,” says Rob Kelley, Head of School.
