Last week, our Board unanimously approved the operating budget for the 2022-23 school year. As part of this process, they set the tuition for next year. The budget process begins in the early fall and involves a very thorough process of review from budget holders to the Finance Committee of the board. As such, it serves as an indicator of what we value at Harding Academy. Clearly our faculty and staff are the foundation of the Harding experience and as nearly seventy-five percent of our budget supports our faculty and staff’s salaries and benefits, we have made every effort to support them through the operating budget. Therefore, the tuition in Lower School will be $23,100 and the tuition in Middle School will be $24,865 for the 2022-23 school year.
This email is also intended to alert you to the re-enrollment process which will begin this afternoon when you receive an email from SchoolAdmin, our online re-enrollment website, with instructions on how to complete your online contract for the 2022-2023 school year. We ask that you complete this process by 5:00 PM on Friday, February 11, 2022. We are most appreciative of the commitment you have made to Harding Academy in the past and the investment this tuition represents for the future. Thank you for the trust this entails as we promise to continue providing an excellent learning experience for your children.
