Financial Assistance

Amy Pennington, Director of Finance

Atlanta Academy was founded on the goal of providing an exceptional and well-rounded education for all of its students. Understanding that the costs associated with funding an independent school education can be challenging, the school offers a need-based financial aid option, enabling some children an opportunity to benefit from the academic programs found at Atlanta Academy that might not otherwise be possible due to financial resource constraints. We believe that students should be admitted based on their ability to thrive, not their ability to afford the cost of an Atlanta Academy education.

Atlanta Academy utilizes FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Service, to assist in making fair and objective decisions. Aid is given to current families first, and if there is remaining aid available, new families are considered for financial awards.

Financial Aid is available for eligible families, Kindergarten through 8th grade. Although Preschool students are not typically eligible for aid, there are exceptions made for families with multiple siblings. As a mechanism to retain the entire family at Atlanta Academy, aid may be extended to the Preschool applicant, as well as the Kindergarten through 8th grade students.
