Affording Laurence

A Laurence education is an invaluable investment in your child's future.
Our academic, character, and enrichment programs are innovative and engaging. Two credentialed teachers staff each classroom, many of whom have educational masters degrees. We also have multiple academic specialists on staff, including in the areas of math, science, technology, performing arts, visual arts, and athletics. In addition, our "Total Child" philosophy guides as, meaning that a we focus not only on academic learning, but also on social and emotional learning. During their years at Laurence, students develop self-confidence and leadership skills and have the opportunity to explore and develop their talents.

We recognize that the cost of a Laurence education is significant for many of our applicant families. It is important for you to know that we are committed to enrolling bright young learners from throughout the Los Angeles area and to partnering with families who choose to make this investment in their children's education.

  • Parents may work with our Business Office to make installment payment plans that work with their budgets. All such arrangements are confidential.
  • Many of our families receive assistance from grandparents, who also recognize the importance of investing in exceptional educational experiences for their grandchildren.
  • Financial assistance is available to families who qualify. Many of our families receive at least some or full tuition assistance. The criteria for our need-based financial assistance awards include a number of factors, such as income, number of children and other dependents, expenses and financial obligations, and other factors, as determined by FAST - an independent financial assistance evaluator from which the school seeks financial assistance guidance.
  • Online applications, forms, and detailed instructions are available on this section of the website from December 1st through the February financial aid application deadline.
