In keeping with the vision of the Sisters of St. Joseph, no student has ever been denied admission solely on the basis of her family's ability to pay full tuition. The philosophy of SJA’s tuition assistance program is that an Academy education be available to all young ladies who wish to attend and have the academic ability and motivation to succeed.
We recognize that tuition can feel prohibitive to many families, and we are committed to making SJA accessible and affordable for all admitted students. We value a school community that includes students from a variety of economic backgrounds.
Each year, SJA offers more than $600,000 in financial aid through our Endowed Scholarships program. Endowed Scholarships are given each year to families based on their financial profile. There are currently 56 fully endowed scholarships held in the SJA Foundation. Interest earned by these scholarships funds SJA's tuition assistance program. Need-based awards range from $1,100 to $8,500, with the average award being $4,500 per family. Typically, an Endowed Scholarship is given to 125-150 families per year.
