Affording Advent

You understand the value of an Advent education, but you're wondering whether or not you can afford it. Advent has withstood pricing pressures for many years, and if you compare the educational results of our students versus the cost, you will see what a value it truly is.
Families use a variety of strategies to pay for their Advent education. Some pay for tuition in one lump sum. Others spread tuition over multiple months using the payment plan.  Some grandparents or other family members may also contribute to tuition. We work with prospective families to explore all of the options, which are numerous. Please contact us to discuss what makes the most sense for you and your family.
Advent is interested in attracting the best students possible, regardless of their economic circumstances. While the primary responsibility for funding the cost of education resides with the family, we also understand that some families need assistance to afford an independent school tuition.

All assistance is awarded in the form of a tuition grant and must be renewed annually. Tuition Assistance awards are determined after an Admissions decision.  The two processes are kept separate. All tuition assistance information is kept confidential. Tuition Assistance is available to students of any race, gender, creed, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin.

Advent works with Smart Aid, a division of Smart Tuition. This organization provides Advent with a confidential statement of need based upon an application for tuition assistance completed by the parents. The application process is online at www.smartaidforparents.com. The code for Advent is: 13146.

Advent no longer uses information from SSS by NAIS.

If you have any questions regarding the the process, please contact E.T. Brown at ebrown@adventepiscopalschool.org.
