Affording Albuquerque Academy
Albuquerque Academy provides need-based tuition-assistance grants that support students across the socio-economic spectrum. If the tuition feels out of reach for your family, we encourage you to apply for a grant. Application opens on September 1, 2023.
Albuquerque Academy Tuition Assistance is…
An opportunity to offer a life-changing education to students who come from diverse economic backgrounds and a partnership with their families. School funds are used to help bridge the gap between full tuition and what a family — using their own financial resources — can afford.
Eligibility for assistance is calculated using a separate, confidential application and verification process, and admission committees do not consider a family’s ability to pay when making a child’s admission decision.
Eligible applicants with the strongest admission profiles are prioritized for grants. Families of admission applicants are notified if they received a grant on the same day admission decisions are released. Tuition assistance is typically renewed on an annual basis for recipients who re-apply and demonstrate financial support is necessary to re-enroll for subsequent school years.
We welcome your family’s application and look forward to working with you. We encourage all interested parents/guardians to attend an informational webinar to learn more!
