No family is ever turned away because of financial reasons.
We strongly believe that a family's financial commitment should be in proportion to its financial resources. Tuition for each student is based on a sliding scale and is determined after a family is accepted to Harlem Academy.
List of 4 items.
How is a family's tuition commitment determined?
Tuition is set based on a family's income and expenses, which are verified during the admissions process. While each individual family is different, you can anticipate that tuition will be between 2% and 5% of gross income.
How does tuition change for a family from year to year or if a second child is admitted to the school?
Tuition is recalculated each year to reflect a family's current financial situation. Discounts are available for families with more than one child enrolled at the school.
Is there a tuition payment plan?
A non-refundable deposit is due upon enrollment. The tuition balance can be paid in one, two, four, or 10 installments over the course of the year.
How affordable is Harlem Academy?
Depending on a family's income, tuition can be as low as $20 per month. We intentionally reserve a significant number of spaces for families who have lower incomes.
