Tuition & Financial Aid
Tuition for the 2015-2016 academic year is $55,900 for boarding students and $44,500 for day students. We understand that each family who considers The Governor’s Academy must find a balance between the value of education and the cost of tuition. We strongly believe that the cost of tuition should not deter you from considering The Governor’s Academy for your child, and our financial aid program helps over 120 families each year who are not able to meet the full cost of tuition on their own.
In order to make The Governor’s Academy Experience a reality for as many students as possible, we are committed to a financial aid program that enables qualified students from all cultural, racial and socio-economic groups to attend. The financial aid program, in short, allows The Governor’s Academy to enroll deserving students who may not otherwise have access to an independent school education. Through our financial aid program, The Governor’s Academy seeks students with an active commitment to integrity, learning, academic excellence, community service and extracurricular participation. We also strive to create a community that is reflective of the diversity of the world into which our graduates will be expected to live and lead.
For the 2014 - 2015 school year, Governor's awarded nearly $4.2 million in financial aid; approximately 30% of students received financial assistance.
Financial aid grants are awarded on the basis of a family’s demonstrated need. To help evaluate demonstrated need, The Governor’s Academy employs the nationally standardized system for analysis offered by the School and Student Services (SSS) which is a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
