Tuition Assistance

candid moments with students

We aim to make a Doane Academy education available to all families, regardless of their financial resources. We offer the following forms of tuition assistance:

Merit Scholarships

Students selected as recipients of a merit scholarship will receive annual awards up to $10,000. 
Merit scholarships will be renewed annually while a recipient is enrolled at Doane Academy, contingent upon the student remaining in good standing academically and socially.

New Students

We offer merit scholarships to domestic students applying for grades 9 through 11. To be considered for merit, applicants should submit all required admission materials by our February 1st priority deadline. Finalists are invited to campus to interview with the Head of School. The total number of awards and the amount of each recipient’s award will be at the discretion of the Admission Committee.

Returning Students

We offer merit scholarships to rising 9th grade students. All rising 9th graders are automatically considered for a merit scholarship. Those who are awarded a scholarship, receive their award with their re-enrollment contract. The total number of awards and the amount of each recipient’s award will be at the discretion of the Admission Committee.

Military Scholarships

We offer $1,000 scholarships to children of current and former military members. Military scholarships will be renewed annually while a recipient is enrolled at Doane Academy, contingent upon the student remaining in good standing academically and socially.

Need-based Financial Aid

Families who cannot afford the full cost of tuition are strongly encouraged to apply for need-based financial aid. Doane Academy partners with School and Student Services (SSS) to collect and review financial aid applications. 

To begin an application, please complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). Our school code is 6808.
