Tuition and Financial Aid

An education at Sumner Academy is an investment in your child's future.

Investing in your child's education is one of the best strategies to ensure a strong foundation, both academically and emotionally. Students who attend a Pre-K - 8th grade school will develop strong values, confidence, and a sense of community with their peers. Sumner Academy provides an engaging curriculum, exciting field studies and innovative opportunities to encourage the growth of each child.

Thank you to SA for giving my granddaughter the solid foundation she received in the Lower Schools. She was able to learn in ways that suited her vivacious personality. Thank you for being a part of her formative years!

Grandparent of Alum


We chose Sumner Academy because we love "hands on" learning. SA excels at teaching the individual child. We know that our children are cared for not only academically, but emotionally as well.

Our family decided early on that our kids' education and happiness were a priority. We are extremely happy with the investment we have made in sending our students to Sumner Academy. This has been returned to us many times over with children who love school, having excellent academic habits, and are growing into kind adults. Our oldest received a full ride to the college of their choice and our middle child will graduate high school one year early. The education and support system at Sumner Academy has been such an integral part of our children's success.
