Tuition and Fees

  • Selwyn School Tuition

    Selwyn School is an independent, nonprofit organization, which means we receive no government funding. Tuition and fees support approximately 80% of our Argyle TX independent school operating expenses; the remaining 20% of the cost is contributed by parents, alumni, and friends of the Selwyn community through annual fundraising and auxiliary programs.
