Affording Harding Academy

We believe that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive Harding  benefits every student. We are committed to making our school financially accessible to all families. Please note, financial aid is currently available to families with students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.

To be eligible for financial aid, families must demonstrate financial need, which is the difference between the school’s tuition and fees and what the family can reasonably contribute. Harding assesses financial need using the analysis of FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. 

If you do not believe you will be able to pay the full tuition, we encourage you to apply for financial aid. The FACTS application is available online at The application asks questions about financial resources and commitments and also requires a complete copy of previous year tax returns and a current year W2 form.
