Business Office

Welcome to Groton School's Business Office web page for students and families. Our goal is to provide you with financial and administrative support and information in a timely and courteous manner. 

Most parents' and guardians' primary contact with the Business Office will relate to tuition billings and students' MyKidsSpending accounts. However, we also interact with parents on questions of tuition refund insurance, student laundry services, student health insurance, and more. I hope these pages will help you navigate through a process that can be confusing at times.

Contact information for the Business Office staff is shown here; you probably will deal most frequently with the top three people.
