Tuition & Affordability
Groves Academy is committed to serving families from a wide range of economic means. Enrolling a bright, talented student body while maintaining very small class sizes is critical to our success in serving the needs of students with learning disabilities and attention disorders.
Groves Academy raises funds each year exclusively for scholarships to help meet the needs of families who could not otherwise afford a Groves education.
Tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is $28,480 for students in Lower School, $29,090 for students in Middle School and $29,570 for students in Upper School. The tuition fee at Groves Academy includes tuition, books, and testing. An additional technology fee ($350) is required. Optional expenses may include speech/language services, occupational therapy, lunch fees, school and class trips and events, yearbook, and after school activities. Tuition may be paid in either two or ten equal installments.
Financial aid at Groves Academy is offered through Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). Financial aid awards at Groves Academy cover a portion of demonstrated need — the calculated difference between the amount a family can be expected to contribute to the cost of the student's education and the cost of annual tuition, books and fees. After a student has been accepted to Groves, financial aid application information is sent to parents along with the enrollment contract. TADS processes each application, evaluates it for financial need, and makes a recommendation to Groves Academy based on the information provided.
Approximately 30% of Groves Academy families receive a partial scholarship each year. The scholarships were based on the assessment recommendation, financial need and available dollars in the Groves Scholarship Fund.
