“An investment in knowledge pays the best dividends.” – Benjamin Franklin
Acton Academy Las Cruces offers need-based financial assistance, which enables the school to assist qualified families who would not otherwise be able to attend. The financial aid comes out of the school budget and is funded entirely by the school founders. Families are encouraged to apply for financial aid via TADS. TADS analyzes individual family income and provides a confidential analysis outlining their ability to pay. The school operates on a balanced budget and relies solely on tuition to fund the guide salaries and operating expenses. We are unable to provide 100% financial aid due to budget limitations.
Financial aid, once awarded, will be continued provided the student’s family qualifies for assistance each year, remains in good academic standing and abides by the community standards of the school. Financial aid is awarded as a percentage of tuition. Families receiving aid should anticipate increases in their share of tuition expenses as incremental tuition increases occur. Parents are under an obligation to inform Acton Academy Las Cruces if there is any change in the family’s financial resources during the course of the year.
In an effort to help offset the decrease in the schools budget due to providing financial aid, families are asked to volunteer 40 hours at the school for every $1000 received in financial aid. Families are also encouraged to exhaust their own individual fundraising efforts to obtain the tuition from friends or family before applying for aid.
