Our Philosophy

We strive to provide resources to make our exceptional education affordable. Financial aid decisions are based on information applicant families provide to School and Student Services, an offering of the National Association of Independent Schools. Financial aid awards are made to qualified students who have enrolled. Awards are made by our Financial Aid Committee and are strictly confidential. Financial aid is funded by the Academy and is awarded on a yearly basis with decisions made in April and May.
Applying for financial assistance has no impact on admission decisions.


Financial aid decisions are made by the Academy Financial Aid Committee and are strictly confidential. Fort Worth Academy funds financial aid and must be applied for annually. Please be aware that the amount available for financial aid is limited and is awarded to qualified recipients on a first-come, first-served basis. Returning families will not be considered for financial aid until their current year’s account is up to date.
