Grow the Pride

Shrink your cost.

Referring a new student pays off - for current and new Cougar families.

We recognize our families are the best to share the Keith difference – from our small class sizes and individualized attention to our unique academic approach and our awesome outcomes, to our family-friendly environment that provides a safe and warm environment for all who attend.

With this in mind, Keith has the Grow the Pride, Shrink Your Cost program to benefit our current parents, while further enhancing our enrollment, and benefiting our new students. When you refer new families/students who enroll at Keith, you can reduce your own tuition costs in the year ahead! See the information below for more information.

Feel free to refer new students to us – or if you are a new family, please provide us the name of your referral source – at any time and you will benefit from the Grow the Pride, Shrink Your Cost tuition discounts.

To remain steadfast in our commitment to our safety protocols, we are providing individualized tours to families who are interested.

Please share your positive insight with your friends, neighbors, and colleagues. We’d welcome them to become part of our Keith family!


Here’s how it works:

Current Student / Recruited Student

23/24 Tuition Discount for Current Family

23/24 Tuition Discount Per Recruited Student(s)

Current Lower School Family Recruits New Lower School Student(s)



Current Lower School Family Recruits New Middle/Upper School Student(s)



Current Middle School or Upper School Family Recruits New Lower School Student(s)



Current Middle School or Upper School Family Recruits New Middle/Upper School Student(s)





  • Additional discounts provided to current families who recruit multi-student families.
  • There is no limit to the number of students a current family may recruit – the more the merrier! The more you recruit, the further your current tuition decreases, with a cap of $0*. How wonderful is that!?
  • Depending on when a student enrolls, the tuition discount will be pro-rated.

The new families referred this year can receive the discount again next year, when they refer a new family. And so on. Welcome a new student, welcome a discount. We all win.

*For every student recruited your tuition decreases by $1,500 for lower school and $2,000 for upper school. You will receive your tuition credit when the recruited student has completed a (year, semester) at Keith. Tuition reimbursement caps out at $0. So if you are at $0 tuition and recruit another student, wonderful! Thank you for helping another child receive an excellent Keith education. However, you will not be credited the recruitment amount.
