Tuition and Scholarships

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.
