Tuition & Financial Aid
A Padua Academy education is an investment that alumnae fondly refer to as the greatest gift their families have given them.
Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is $15,000. Tuition remains affordable due to generous donations from parents, alumnae, and members of the community. Although the actual cost of a Padua education far exceeds the tuition, philanthropic contributions enable students to receive the gift of a Padua education.
Padua Academy offers a variety of payment options to best fit the needs of each family.
Applicants for Padua Academy’s Class of 2022 earned over $350,000 in academic scholarships. Scholarships are awarded to applicants who possess a strong academic record and excel on the High School Placement Test. These awards are renewable each year.
Financial aid is based solely on demonstrated need. Any family who believes it is unable to afford the full cost of tuition is encouraged to apply for financial aid. Padua uses School and Student Services (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools, to process financial aid applications.
Based on the financial information a family provides, SSS gives Padua an estimated amount a family can contribute to educational expenses. This enables Padua to make fair and objective financial aid decisions.
