Tuition and Financial Aid

2022-2023 Tuition and Fees

  • Annual Tuition: $21,250

  • Materials and Technology Fee: $350


Tuition at Ann Arbor Academy reflects our low student/teacher ratio and our commitment to a quality education for exceptional learners. Financial aid is available to help families meet an established financial need, and we have a variety of payment options as well. Because we offer rolling admissions, tuition for mid-year enrollment is prorated by semester or quarter.

Financial Aid

Note: Scholarship funding for students for the 2022-2023 school year has mostly been allocated already. Only financial aid for the Early Learners (grades K-3) is available as of Fall 2022 .

Families may apply for financial aid during the admissions process. Details about how to apply are provided within the application. You will need to supply documentation including the most recent year's federal tax return. There is a $35 fee for applying for financial aid, but this fee will be taken out of tuition owed in the event that the student enrolls.

The calculation for financial aid consideration is made by taking into account that 12% to 15% of household income can typically be put toward tuition. We take into account things such as medical expenses, college or other private school tuition costs, unexpected circumstances, etc. There is no guarantee that we can meet all the demonstrated need a family has.

Financial aid decisions are made for returning students during May each year, and for new students as soon as possible after admission. Priority in financial aid awards is given to returning students. We generally do not have financial aid available after September of each year.

Tuition As a Medical Expense

Ann Arbor Academy tuition may be counted as a medical expense for families who have an attending child with a documented disability, because it is a specialized school. This is a pre-tax credit; we do not accept insurance. There is an excellent article about this option here:
