Admissions: Frequently Asked Questions
How many students does Edison accept?
Because total enrollment is capped at 94 students, we accept approximately 25 new students each year. Should space become available during the school year, we contact families who are on the waiting list.
Do you accept juniors or seniors?
Most of our incoming students are freshmen, but we do accept sophomores and juniors if space is available. We do not offer admission to incoming seniors.
Do students stay all four years?
Edison is a four-year high school. Most of our students attend all four years and graduate from Edison High School.
What is the cost of tuition?
Tuition for the 2016-2017 school year is $21,700.
Is financial aid available?
Yes. Financial aid awards are determined by an independent service called FACTS and are based on financial need. The average award is approximately 50% of tuition. About 25% of our students receive financial aid.
Do you accept students with ASD/Asperger syndrome?
Because our school is largely based on a social model of learning, Edison High School is rarely the best placement option for students with ASD/Asperger syndrome. However, we do accept a limited number of students with Asperger's that we believe will do well at Edison.
What if my child isn't on an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or hasn't been diagnosed with a specific learning disability?
Several of our students are in this category. We have a very thorough evaluation process, and admit those students who we believe will be a good fit for Edison.
