22-23 By the Numbers

Cost of a Dawson Education

In 2022-23, the total cost to educate a Dawson student was $38,975. While tuition payments covered approximately 70 percent of this cost, the School relied on Dawson Annual Fund donations and other sources of revenue to supplement tuition. 

The Alexander Dawson Foundation contributed $3,355,498 ($5,865 per student). The Dawson Annual Fund donations, individual contributions, and other sources of revenue accounted for an additional $3,528 per student. These sources of income were crucial in continuing to provide our students with an exceptional educational experience. 

We would like to acknowledge and thank all of those who support the School with their generous contributions.
