New legislation in 2023 expands the use of 529 plans to cover a portion of private school tuition. Click here for more information. If you have questions about using a 529 plan for education-related expenses at Prep, please reach out to Bruce Sachs in the Business Office.

Please note that the total cost to educate each student at Santa Fe Prep exceeds tuition and fees. The difference between total cost and what parents pay is covered by income from the school’s modest endowment and the school community’s generosity in response to fundraising efforts. Each family is expected to participate in the Fund for Santa Fe Prep. Thanks to our parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends.
