What is Tailored Tuition?

Tailored Tuition is the tuition affordability model at Atlanta Girls’ School. This model allows AGS to create a culturally and socioeconomically diverse community that fosters inclusion and enriches the educational and social-emotional experience for students and adults. We understand that every family’s financial picture is different. Tailored Tuition uses a family’s unique financial situation and ability to afford AGS to determine an individualized tuition for your daughter(s).
