Affording Harding Academy

At Harding Academy, we understand that funding the cost of an independent school education is a challenge for many families. Our financial assistance program enables students who might not otherwise have access to an independent school education to benefit from the academic programs found here. Financial Aid is available to students enrolling in Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Harding Academy offers financial aid to accepted students based on their family’s demonstrated need, which is the difference between the school’s tuition and fees and what the family can reasonably contribute. In order to determine family contribution, Harding uses the analysis of FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. All applicants for financial aid are required to apply with FACTS at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3VNGN.

In addition, parents must submit a complete copy of their previous year tax returns and current year W2 form. All required materials must be submitted before the student can be considered by the Financial Aid Committee.
