Tuition & Fees
Think you can't afford a quality private education? Check us out!
At Arches Academy, we strive to make exceptional private education affordable to families who value a strong academic education. Arches Academy is a non-profit 501(c)(3) private institution that does not receive government funding, therefore it relies on donations and tuition to finance the school’s operating expenses. Our tuition is lower than other comparable private schools throughout the state and throughout the country.

In order to reach as many exceptional students as possible, Arches Academy offers Variable Tuition. This program allows families to apply for reduced tuition that is right for their family's financial situation. Any family may apply for Variable Tuition if they are concerned about affording the full tuition rate at Arches Academy and they think they may qualify for the program. Often, families that receive variable tuition are asked to provide service hours.
See our FAQ page for further details.

"Enrolling in Arches Academy is the best thing we ever did for our kids. The teachers at Arches partner with the students and their parents to make sure that each child's need are individually addressed. We genuinely feel like we are a part of an academic family who truly cares about each other. In a world where most kids are trying to figure out where they belong, there is nothing more important than that."

Choose a Nursery, Preschool, or PreK Schedule!
Families with small children can have really different scheduling needs. We are excited to offer several options for our youngest students.
Preschool/PreK Program Options:
Full-day or Half-day
Every day (Recommended) or M/W/F or T/Th
For families with more than one child attending the school, we offer sibling discounts:
10% off for the second child
15% off for the third child
25% off for each additional sibling
(Does not apply to variable tuition as # of children is already taken into account.)
Arches offers annual, quarterly, or monthly payment plans with a signed contract. For all payment plans except annual, Arches requires families to carry Tuition Insurance (typically $350 per year/student, plus $50.00 payment plan fee, subject to third party policy changes).
You can choose up to 12 payments, spreading the total tuition over more payments so each payment is smaller. (Must be paid in full by May 31 each year.) Payments are made using an online auto payment system.
Families who pay in full prior to June 31st of each year save $400 per student.
