Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition & Financial Aid 2018-05-31T12:27:06+00:00

The 2018-19 school year marks Pitt Academy’s 69th Anniversary.  We know that Pitt Academy fills a vital education need in this community, and it is our goal to continue to provide an affordable alternative for those children who may struggle in a traditional school setting.

Pitt Academy uses a two tiered tuition system based upon the specific needs of the student.  The Principal and Teaching Staff evaluate the specific needs of each student and designates an appropriate tier for that student.  The tiers are based on projected costs of providing for the particular needs of each student.

Pitt Academy’s tuition & fees for the 2018-2019 school year:

  • One-Time Non Refundable Registration Fee              $200.00 per family
  • Tier I Families                                                                    $12,254.00
  • Tier II Families                                                                  $14,500.00
Tuition is payable in one of the following three options:
  1. Tuition can be paid in full by July 20, 2018.  This means the school will receive full payment of tuition on or before July 20, 2018.  You will receive a $300 discount** for choosing this option.
  2. Tuition can be paid in two* payments.  The first one is due on July 20, 2018.  The second payment is due on January 25, 2019.  You will receive a $150 discount** for choosing this option.
  3. Families that do not choose the one or two payment option MUST enroll in the FACTS payment plan (see link below for new family set up).  Payments will begin in July and will be set up on an 11 month installment plan.  FACTS charges a one-time $43.00 processing fee, which is automatically deducted prior to the first withdrawal.

**Withdrawals after June 1 but prior to August 1 are subject to the following financial obligation:

  • After June 1 – one month’s tuition is due, after July 1 – two month’s tuition is due.
  • One year’s tuition is due if a student withdraws after August 1. This is required because the hiring of teachers and staff is based upon anticipated enrollment. Requests for exceptions must be addressed to the Finance Committee, in writing, and will only be considered in extreme circumstances.
  • All fees are non-refundable.
  • Any family with a past due balance at the end of a semester will not be allowed to return the next semester until their account is made current.

 

As of June 30, 2018 Pitt Academy will not longer split tuition between multiple parties. For example, if parents are divorced, Pitt Academy will NOT split the tuition between both parents. One parent/guardian/or single party will be solely responsible for the full tuition. This policy includes all current tuition accounts as well as new enrollments.

**Families that receive financial assistance will not be eligible to receive the one payment or two payment discount.

SCHOOL FEES:  School Fees are non-refundable.

Based upon Pitt Academy’s increased costs in materials and technology, as well as Life Skills training for all students the school fees for the 2018-19 school year will be $230.00.  This fee ($230.00) will be included to the total tuition owed and included in the FACTS monthly tuition payments.

FINANCIAL AID:

Pitt Academy has four sources of financial aid for qualified families. By completing the FACTS Application, you’re applying for all four of the offered financial aid sources. Please find the link below:

Families are responsible for applying for all scholarships on their own.  Deadline for your Application is February 28, 2018 for the 2018-19 school year. The purpose of the Financial Aid Program at Pitt Academy is to provide assistance to our parents who are in need of such aid in order to meet the cost of their child’s tuition. The Board of Directors designates a limited amount of funds toward tuition assistance. Qualification for aid is determined by the Finance Committee. In awarding aid, the Committee takes into account the family size, ages and schools of children, additional dependents, all sources of income, debts and unusual expenses.

Each year the school receives a large number of requests for financial aid. The applications are reviewed by the Finance Committee. Each year, the Committee strives to allocate the available financial aid funds to where they are most needed.
