Tuition Assistance

Investing in a Jackson Academy education is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child and one of the most powerful ways to help shape his or her future.

We believe that cost alone should not stand as the only barrier between your child and a high quality education. JA supports an economically diverse student body, providing need-based tuition assistance to the extent that funds are available.


A limited amount of Tuition Assistance is available for families with demonstrated financial need, therefore, please apply as early as possible.  The determination of financial need is calculated by SSS – School and Student Services, an independent third party.  The criteria for applying for assistance include:

  • Student must be accepted or enrolled at JA before applying for assistance.
  • Student must be in good standing, both academically and behaviorally.
  • Current families must be in good standing with the Billing Office. 
  • There must be at least one earned income in the household to apply. 
  • Families currently enrolled as full-pay families must provide written documentation of a significant change in financial condition that occurred after the time of enrollment to apply for assistance. (ex. pink slip dated 4 months prior to applying (without re-employment), death certificate of income-producing family member)
