In everything we do, we strive to find an equitable path forward. As we share in our Core Values - we believe in an affordable education with tuition based on need and an ability to pay. We aim to offer the full Golden Bridges experience at a cost that takes into consideration the financial challenges of living in San Francisco alongside the sustainability and well-being of the school organization and teacher salaries.
Families from all economic backgrounds are welcome.
The Board of Trustees for Golden Bridges School set tuition for the 2022-2023. At these levels, our budget can provide Equitable Tuition to nearly 50% of our families (using 20-25% of annual budget).

"We feel that this approach is not just so that our individual children can grow and be successful, but rather that this type of education benefits humanity as a whole. And that's what we want to bring and share within this community of Golden Bridges." — Golden Bridges Parent
