Affording an NYA Education

Financial Aid Applications for current families are due January 20, 2015. Applicant applications are due February 1, 2015.

The goal of our financial aid program is to help close the gap between the total cost of a North Yarmouth Academy education and what our families can afford. Nonetheless, applicants accepted for admission and qualifying on the basis of proven financial need often outnumber those whom we can afford to support. At such times, a waiting list for financial aid is created. Although need is the first and absolute requirement for financial aid, in selecting new recipients of aid from the waiting list, we base our evaluation on the student’s overall academic and personal strengths. NYA requires families to reapply for financial aid each year during the reenrollment process. We are committed to supporting a student through graduation provided a demonstrated need continues to exist. Please note that a family’s award amount may change from year to year if the family’s financial situation changes.

Applying for Financial Aid

Please note that the deadline for current families to apply for financial aid is January 20. The deadline for applicants is February 1. Families applying for financial aid after the deadline will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis pending available funds left in the financial aid pool.

NYA uses a third party  to calculate financial need. TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services) is the same service we use for our Admission Process. Using a third party ensures fair and confidential financial needs assessments for families.
