Tuition and Fees
Most private schools require the full upcoming year’s tuition to be paid up-front in the spring as a non-refundable deposit. AHS is different, however, in that we allow month-to-month payments. Our tuition is also very different from comparable private schools, as our rates are 1/2 to 1/3 lower. Because all buildings and land are funded by generous private donors, and because we carry no debt, AHS tuition is half of what it would be otherwise.

When do I have to pay my tuition?
Seating status will not be granted until the March installment has been received by the school. If not received by March 1, accepted students run the risk of being placed on a waiting list.
- Monthly Installments—patrons will make twelve monthly installment payments from March 2023 through February 2024, each installment due by the 5th of each month.
- Late Enrollment—students enrolling after the month of March will have an alternate payment schedule. If the late enrollment occurs after the start of the school year, tuition amounts will also be adjusted so that tuition paid is commensurate with the number of days attended.
How do I pay my tuition?
ACH—School patrons are set up to do an automatic debit from their checking account on the 5th of each month. Bank account information is submitted at the time of enrollment. For questions, please contact Ali Walters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I use 529 Plan Funds to pay tuition?
Yes. An account holder can distribute up to $10,000 per year for K-12 tuition expenses Tax-Free from a 529 Plan. American Heritage Salt Lake City is a qualifying institution. Please consult a tax advisor for more specific questions.

- Kindergarten Student: $50

Are there any other fees of which I need to be aware?
Tuition covers virtually all of the basic, curricular experience a student has at American Heritage School. Additional expenses may include, but are not limited to, uniforms, experiential learning courses, and available various extra-curricular activities that your child may elect to pursue. Extra-curricular offerings include after-school athletics and music programs. Extra-curricular programs often do have a participation fee associated with them that is designed to cover the costs of offering the program.
What is the process for International Students?
Seating status will not be granted until the June installment (25% of international tuition fee) has been received by the school. If the payment has not been received by June 1, accepted international students run the risk of being placed on a waiting list.
The remainder of the tuition obligation (75% of international tuition) is due no later than August 1. In cases of late enrollment, all tuition must be prepaid in full BEFORE the student can be admitted to class.
If choosing to wire funds, please contact the Admissions Office for instructions.
