The Piedmont School knows that tuition can be a daunting thought for many. We also know how important it is for families to find the appropriate educational environment for their child. With this in mind, The Piedmont School does have a tuition assistance program that offers some assistance to current and new families who qualify. The Piedmont School also accepts grants from NCSEAA (ESA/ESA+ and Opportunity Scholarship).
