Tuition & Fees

The investment independent school families make in their children’s educational experiences brings great returns in both the near and long term.

An investment in an Academy at the Lakes experience means you are giving your child a chance to learn how to think critically, to embrace opportunities, to lead by example, and to be successful in many and varied ways. Your child will learn how to express her- or himself in writing, how to have the confidence to collaborate and build relationships with others, and how to speak in public with clarity and confidence. The highly personalized environment in our school will help your child realize her/his unique gifts and potential to impact the world.

By embracing an Academy experience for your children, you are teaching them to “celebrate the love of learning and the joy in the journey.”

Did you know? Academy graduates are consistently accepted to their first choice colleges. Our graduates attend many of the nation’s most selective colleges and universities.
