After our initial visit, we knew City Academy’s academic rigor would challenge our children. Since the school offers financial assistance to all families, City Academy was an affordable option for our family.” – Demetrius and Tamara, City Academy parents

Financial assistance is offered to all families following their child’s acceptance into the City Academy’s rigorous academic program. All City Academy families pay tuition – the amount is based on family income.

Financial Aid applications are processed through our Parent Portal, Alma. Once you have created an account and applied for admission, you will also be able to fill out a Financial Aid application.

  • Financial Aid Application is due January 27, 2023.

Tuition payments begin in July and are due on the 10th of each month. Once a family is accepted to City Academy, payment plans and details will be arranged. All payments must be made on schedule for a family’s account to remain in good standing. Tuition account balances may not be carried from year to year.
