In keeping with Academy at the Lakes’ values, we are committed to maintaining a diverse student body of academically-qualified and mission-appropriate students.
We understand and appreciate the investment that families make when they enroll at Academy at the Lakes. We do our best to assist families who qualify for need-based financial aid, and we expect that each family will contribute an appropriate amount toward their child’s education.
We use Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process our financial aid applications. FAST is a service of Independent School Management.
Based on the financial information you provide, FAST gives us an estimated amount that your family can contribute to educational expenses.
This helps our school make fair and objective financial aid decisions. Financial Aid requests must be renewed annually, as awards are made for one year only.
To begin your financial aid application for the 2016-2017 school year, follow these steps below. (Please note: this is an online application)
