Pennfield’s Making It Possible Initiative

By July 27, 2021September 3rd, 2021News

Making It Possible initiative, launched in 2020, was aimed at making a Pennfield education accessible to more Rhode Island and Massachusetts families. The goal was achieved, and in the 2020-2021 school year, we enrolled the largest number of new students in the history of the school.

Our Board of Trustees unanimously voted to continue the RESET tuition rates for the 2021-2022 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 was also a kick off for Pennfield’s 50th anniversary celebration.

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.

We’ve reset tuition so you can rethink the possibilities!
