Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition and Fees

The Sharon Academy is an approved independent school. This means that we are approved to receive tuition money from those Vermont towns that normally tuition students out to area schools.

In our effort to make TSA accessible to all families in the Upper Valley, The Sharon Academy has based our tuition on the Vermont “Announced Average Tuition” so students from “sending” towns can come to TSA at no additional cost to the family.  As a result of this practice, 85% of our students, on average, are publicly funded.

For students from non-sending towns, tuition fees for 2017 – 2018 are $15,130 for both the middle school and the high school.

In addition to tuition, TSA charges an annual fee to cover most of the student activities, events, and incidentals incurred throughout the year.  In the 2017-2018 school year, this Annual Fee was $660 for the high school and  $535 in the middle school.

More information on the Middle School Annual Fee

TSA will charge an annual fee of $535 in the 2017-2018 school year to cover most of the student activities, events, and incidentals incurred throughout the year. Examples of items that are supported by the yearly fee are: field trips, assignment notebooks, school dances, misc. workbooks, and meals provided during the Circus. Most other schools, including public schools, charge for these items and events individually. For example, one local high school charges $150 for the class trip and the yearbook costs $75 extra. We believe this creates a culture of the “haves” and “have-nots.” In keeping with our philosophy of inclusion, we have created this non-itemized fee to encourage all students to participate in our school activities and to foster a more inclusive and equitable community. Items not included in the Annual School Fee are: fees associated with skiing, some specialized elective fees, any items sold for fundraising, sports participation fees, and fees for other programs offered at TSA but not affiliated with TSA.

Thanks to contributions from many generous friends of The Sharon Academy, we have developed a scholarship program for students enrolled in 7th and 8th grades. Please click here for more information: Pat Woodin Scholarship.

At this time, TSA does not have the financial resources to offer scholarships to high school students who live outside of school choice towns. Families from school choice towns who are experiencing financial hardship, may apply to have their annual fees waived.
