The Ellis School is Pittsburgh's only age 3 - grade 12 independent school dedicated to the education of girls and young women. Within a culture of respect, excellence, and support, our students lead in all areas of school life, building the foundation to lead in local and global communities. Girl by girl, we develop the mind, body, and spirit while encouraging independent thinking, leadership, a lifelong love of learning, and the honest pursuit of academic inquiry.
Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
