Financing an independent education is a major investment in your child's future; it requires planning and a strong commitment. Sumner Academy makes every effort to enroll students according to their strengths rather than their financial circumstances and therefore provides a financial aid program to help meet the needs of our families. Admission decisions are made separately from financial aid decisions. You should not be discouraged from applying to Sumner Academy because of financial concerns. Each year, Sumner Academy budgets an amount of money to assist families who demonstrate need. Financial aid is awarded on a need based process.
Steps in the Financial Aid Process:
After a child has gone through the testing process and has been accepted, financial aid information may be accessed on line at www.smarttuitionaid.com. Our school ID is 12015.
Submit a signed copy of the previous year's tax return to Sumner Academy.
- Submit a signed Sumner Academy Enrollment Contract with Registration Fee.
Financial aid award letters are mailed within 30 days of your completed application process.
It is imperative that families applying for financial aid, both new and returning, apply early. Every year there is more demand for aid than funds available. Financial aid awards are good for one year only. Families must reapply each year.
