List of 3 items.

  • Tuition Refund Plan

    Because the financial commitment of enrollment is for an entire year, Augusta Prep offers a Tuition Refund Plan. For a charge of 2.6% of the total tuition, parents may insure themselves against full liability for unused tuition. Please contact the Admission Office for details of this program.
  • Financial Aid

    Augusta Prep's financial aid program is designed to support our commitment to helping families afford the cost of tuition for Kindergarten - Grade 12. Grades Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten are not eligible for financial assistance. Financial aid is granted to families on the basis of need, as determined by the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST). Augusta Prep strives to make equitable aid awards, relative to each family’s level of demonstrated financial need and to the school’s student aid budget.

    FAST is an online service that provides a recommendation to Augusta Prep of what a family should be able to contribute toward tuition, based on income, expenses, and net worth. The Financial Aid Committee reviews the FAST recommendation and decides the amount of aid, if any, awarded to each family.

    Families who wish to apply for assistance should notify the Admission Office and file with FAST online after November 1st. The priority deadline for filing with FAST is February 1.

    Also, parents must submit a copy of their most recent Federal Tax Return and W-2’s to FAST in order to complete the financial aid application process. It is recommended that you submit all forms by the stated deadlines in order to receive priority consideration.

    To apply for financial aid, complete the FAST application. For more information on financial aid or payment plans, please contact the Admission Office.
  • Scholarships

    Augusta Preparatory Day School aspires to create financial access for qualified students through its scholarship as well as its need-based financial aid programs. Each year, scholarships are awarded to new applicants to the school. Augusta Prep is fortunate to have been chosen by the Malone Family and Goizueta foundations for scholarship support (see below). These scholarships are awarded to outstanding students in grades 7-12 with demonstrated need. They can range in value according to the merit and level of need of an applicant. For example, the value of a Malone Scholarship can be as high as the costs of full tuition and fees. No special scholarship application is required. Interested families should complete the admission and financial aid applications.

    Augusta Prep also offers financial assistance through the Georgia GOAL Scholarship program. This is for students entering K-12 from public school six weeks prior or following one year of homeschooling.

    MALONE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

    In 2008, Augusta Prep was selected as a Malone Family Foundation School, making it today one of only 50 schools in the country and the only school in Georgia to receive this distinction.

    Augusta Prep was recognized by the foundation for its: “academic caliber; the quality of its staff; excellent accommodations for gifted and talented students; strong AP and enrichment programs; attention to the individual student's needs, interests and talents; financial strength and stability; and its commitment to financial aid; in an economically, culturally, ethnically, and socially diverse population.”

    The Malone Scholarship Program Scholars Program rewards academically gifted and talented middle and upper school students, grades 7-12, who meet the following criteria:

    Superior academic ability and motivation, evidenced by standardized test scores and high class ranking (top 5%)

    A Malone Scholarship can cover up to the full cost of tuition and fees for each year the student meets expected academic standards, demonstrates continued good citizenship and character, and continues to qualify for need-based financial aid.
