Affording Alverno Heights Academy


Tuition Information

Each year, the Board of Trustees determines tuition for Alverno Heights Academy based on the annual cost of educating a child as projected in the operating budget for the coming academic and fiscal year. Prospective and current families should anticipate an increase in tuition each year due to the normal increase in operating expenses. Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year will be announced in early 2018. 

Tuition and Fees for the 2017-2018 School Year

Grades 9-11: $18,750
Grade 12: $18,935 (Includes Graduation fees.) 
Fundraising Obligations: $950 (Annual Giving Campaign, Annual Gala Tickets and Donation, and Student Fundraiser)

Currently, Alverno’s tuition does not fully cover the cost of educating a student at Alverno. In order to bridge the gap, Alverno has set minimum fundraising expectations for families as shown above. These may be paid in one payment at the beginning of the school year or once per quarter.

Additionally, families are expected to complete 20 service hours (10 hours for single-parent families) each school year. Service hours may be purchased at $25 per hour.

*Tuition does not include the cost of uniforms, textbooks, or electronic devices which may range from $300 to $1,000. Additional fees for activities, AP courses, athletics, field trips, etc. range from $100 to $150 depending on your daughter’s involvement. Please reference the form below for estimated financial responsibilities and estimated fees for this school year.
