Financial Aid

We recognize that choosing an independent school is a major financial decision for families.  Harrisburg Academy strives to assist as many families as possible who cannot afford the full tuition but are determined to stretch their own financial resources to make education their family's top priority.  In a typical year, the Academy awards need-based financial aid to approximately 35 percent of the student body.  Most of our financial aid awards cover 50 percent or less of tuition.  Financial aid is not available for Preschool, Junior Kindergarten, and Kindergarten.

 

The Academy awarded $1.2 million in need-based financial aid for the 2017-18 academic year to nearly 40 percent of the student body.  Qualified, motivated students are encouraged to apply for admission, regardless of financial need.
 
Need-based financial aid is available to Academy families based on a number of different factors.  Financial aid is renewable for each year the student remains enrolled at the Academy.  Families are required to complete an online financial aid application and upload tax documentation annually so we can review each applicant's circumstances. 

Questions about the Academy’s tuition should be directed to the Admission Office.  Questions about logging into or using the Simple Tuition Solutions portal should be directed to their Help Desk at financial aid processing (717-599-7611 or support@simpletuitionsolutions.org).  Help desk hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Eastern time).

 

For the Current 2018-19 Academic Year

Financial aid in support of a mid-year transfer is available but extremely limited.  This program is administered through Simple Tuition Solutions.  Please note – this same portal is used for current family tuition processing, so a single username and password should be used for both needs and over the course of your student's years at Harrisburg Academy.

 

For the Upcoming 2019-20 Academic Year

Families with students in 1st through 12th grade for the upcoming 2019-20 academic year are eligible to apply for tuition assistance through Simple Tuition Solutions.  Please note – this same portal is used for current family tuition processing, so a single username and password should be used for both needs and over the course of your student's years at Harrisburg Academy.  

Current Academy families that complete their online application and provide W-2, 1099, and supporting documents by Feb. 20, 2019 should receive their decision letter in March 2019.  Applications are considered on a rolling basis, including funding availability.  All financial aid applications for returning families are due March 15, 2019.  Families new to the Academy should complete the financial aid process at their earliest convenience, but no later than two weeks after the application for admission is submitted.  The process to review financial aid requests will begin when all schedules and related documents are submitted.
