Financial Aid

Every dollar a parent spends at Washington Academy is an investment in their child, providing them with rigorous academics, unique hands-on learning experiences, and quality teachers who will help shape the future of each student. All these resources combined with WA’s low tuition rate make them one of the best values for education in the country.

Washington Academy offers limited financial aid awarded on the basis of demonstrated need. The amount of the award is determined by the Financial Aid Committee and is based on the following:

• The total financial aid available to the school
