TUITION & FEES
SSA offers semester-long contracts.
For the 202 Academic Semester, tuition (payable in installments) is as follows:
Sibling discount*: 10% off 2nd, 3rd, or 4th child.
- $100 non-refundable application fee. (For more information, see our enrollment process)
- At the time of enrollment, families are required to pay 15% of their total tuition to begin at SSA.
-SSA does not currently offer an afterschool program. (School hours: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm)
- Field trips, activities, books, and supplies are included with your tuition, although in some rare occasions School Meeting might request additional (non-mandatory) support for specific activities.
- Late pick-up and late payment fees are charged on a case-by-case basis. However, they can be easily avoided with open and honest communication.
*Families receiving financial aid are not eligible to receive sibling discounts.
SSA is proud to offer an income-based financial aid program, intended to bridge the gap between what a family can afford to pay and the full cost of tuition. Grants are made each semester and a new application is required each term, as family circumstances and the program’s allotment may change. Financial Aid is considered separately from the admissions process, and it is determined on a case-by-case basis. With some families paying as little as 10% of the total cost of tuition.
Once a student has been accepted for admission, financial aid is determined and renewed on the basis of demonstrated financial need without regard to race, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, genetic information, disability status, or family structure.
First priority is given to students currently enrolled with financial aid. This is to provide families in the program assurance that funds will be available for them each year as long as they continue to qualify or until their child(ren) graduate or withdraw. The Financial Committee then reviews current students who have newly applied for assistance due to hardship or qualifying change in circumstances. We expect SSA families who begin paying full tuition to continue doing so, however, we recognize that unexpected and significant financial changes do occur. Finally, newly accepted students are given consideration for financial aid.
With the goal of making our school truly accessible to as many families as possible, SSA's Financial Committee (FC) will review all applications and determine Financial Aid grants. Financial aid information is held strictly confidential and not shared with any member of the community outside of the Committee and identifying information is only shared with the Committee if pertinent in the instance of an extenuating circumstance.
Your family needs to submit a complete application before the deadline to be eligible for Financial Aid. Incomplete applications risk their eligibility for Financial Aid.
With the goal of making our school truly accessible to as many families as possible, at times, we might have a waitlist. We encourage you to complete steps 1 and 2 of the enrollment process and complete your Financial Aid application for the Financial Committee to review your eligibility.
