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!

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.

Questions about financial aid? Contact the Director of Operations

We are committed to providing each student a strong education, regardless of financial need. Each year, Sumner Academy budgets an amount of money to assist families who demonstrate financial need. Admissions decisions are made separately from financial aid determinations.

Steps in the Financial Aid Process:

  1. Apply for admission and receive acceptance.
  2. After a child has gone through the application process and has been accepted, financial aid information may be accessed through our management system. Click the "apply for aid" to begin this process.
  3. Submit a signed Sumner Academy Enrollment Contract with Registration Fee.
  4. Financial aid award letters are emailed 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.
