$1.4 million in need-based financial aid was awarded to 36% of the students (gr. 1-12) in the 2022-2023 academic year.
At Andrews Osborne Academy, we are committed to making our school affordable for families. AOA provides financial assistance to qualifying families who have completed the admission application process. This reduces the tuition allowing students the opportunity to attend Andrews Osborne Academy.
Andrews Osborne Academy awarded $1.4 million to 36% of the student body in the 2022-2023 academic year. The average income of a family receiving financial assistance is $78,500. The average award is $11,200. Financial aid awards range from a 5% reduction of tuition to a maximum of 75% reduction of tuition with families paying a range of $3,000 to $16,500 in tuition.
We understand that families have questions about making an AOA education possible. We encourage families to learn more about the Financial Assistance program.
