Tuition and Affordability

It starts with an investment in your student's future...

Ascension Academy offers a proven college preparatory program with measurable outcomes for its students.  These outcomes are only possible through the willingness of parents to invest in the future of their students.  It is important for our families to understand the importance of their tuition dollars in support of program costs, and to recognize that tuition fees alone do not support the full cost of their student's education.  As such, it is very important that every family is willing to contribute the maximum amount they are able toward tuition.

Variable Tuition for 2017-2018

Students at Ascension Academy are responsible for a one-time application fee, an annual enrollment deposit, and annual tuition. 

Initial Fees and Deposits

Application fee $ 75 one-time fee for application processing and testing

Enrollment deposit* $500 due on April 1, 2017

*Enrollment deposit reserves a position in the class and is applied to the last tuition payment.

Variable Tuition Plan

Tuition for the 2017-2018 year ranges from $4,300 to $11,000, or $360 to $900 per month. Families unable to pay the full $11,000 tuition may apply for a tuition variance. No family applying for a variance will pay less than $4,300 for the year. Tuition payments may be scheduled over a period as long as a twelve-months beginning in July and ending in June of the academic year. Once enrolled, enrollment for succeeding years is continuous and automatic.  Full payment, semester payments, and bank draft discounts are also available.

Applying for a Variance

Ascension Academy uses FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment as a trusted third party contribution assessment tool.  We use the assessment recommendation as a baseline for the variable tuition contribution level for returning students and new applicant families.  The fee for a FACTS application is $30.  Please note:  The deadline for FACTS applications to be considered is March 1, 2017.  Click the link below to begin an application:
