Tuition and Acceptance Rate
- Lawrenceville requires students to take a minimum number of core courses in each academic department. This traditional educational approach is complemented by a rich array of elective offerings. Most of our students take 15 courses per year. Academic advisors faculty members associated with or living in the Houses help students choose their courses each trimester. These consultations focus on the overall degree of difficulty of the schedule, concerns about adjustments to the rigors of the School's curriculum, and commitments to athletic or extracurricular activities.
