Join us in exploring if City Elementary is the right fit for your student. 


Thank you for your interest in City Elementary. We are committed to enrolling students and families who believe in our mission. The foundation of our school is supporting students to be confident, empathetic, and academically empowered learners. Our ultimate goal is to support your effort to find a school that fits your child’s and family’s needs.



The best way to introduce you to our school, mission, and philosophy is to schedule a visit to City Elementary. We want you to experience the same personal attention that our students receive on a daily basis, which is why we schedule individual tours with each family.



The tuition for 2022–23 is $29,600. It can be paid upfront or in installments. City Elementary typically cannot offer comprehensive financial aid or scholarships, but you are welcome to inquire.

University of Chicago faculty are eligible for the Diverse Learners Tuition Portability Benefit.

We entertain admissions on a rolling basis, depending on fit and available space in our mixed-age classrooms.



Please be in touch so we can schedule a short phone call and tour. During this time, we will help determine whether City Elementary is a good fit for your child. For security purposes, walk-in tours are not available. We look forward to getting to know you and your family!
