Affording Albuquerque Academy
If you think your family might not be able to pay for the full cost of attending Albuquerque Academy, we encourage you to apply for assistance. Students applying for admission may submit their applications for tuition assistance as early as September 1, 2022.
Tuition Assistance at the Academy
Albuquerque Academy partners with families to provide need-based tuition assistance, making an Academy education accessible to students from diverse backgrounds at a wide variety of income levels. It is our intention to meet 100% of demonstrated need for as many qualified students as resources will allow.
It is always our hope to make an Academy education accessible for all accepted students. Unfortunately, the total need of the applicant pool typically exceeds available resources, and some families who qualify for assistance will not receive it. Albuquerque Academy endeavors to allocate — in the most fair and equitable way — tuition assistance to the strongest applicants who apply for assistance.
Tuition for the 2022-23 school year is $26,176, which includes the academic experience, lunch, and most extracurriculars. It does not cover the cost of some textbooks, bookstore incidentals, and laptops in grades 8-12.
