Tuition and Financial Aid

A Milton Academy education is a significant investment in your child’s future. Our focus is on creating a unique and valuable experience that celebrates each student’s individuality. Milton’s diversity is a hallmark of the School and we actively seek young people with academic promise and a range of talents, skills and interests.

2024–2025 Tuition

The school charges a single tuition fee that includes all K-8 student experiences.

Grades 6, 7, 8: $64,780
Grades 4, 5: $50,580
Grades 1, 2, 3: $46,880
Kindergarten: $45,580

Middle school tuition includes tuition insurance, lunch, all books and supplies, a school-issued Chromebook, use of athletic uniforms & equipment, the after school homework program, field trips (including the 8th grade overnight trip), and social events.

Lower school tuition includes tuition insurance, morning snack, lunch, all books and supplies, a school-issued iPad or Chromebook (as applicable by grade), field trips, and social events.

Parents/guardians may choose to enroll their students in other, optional programs at Milton Academy for which families will be charged a fee, including but not limited to: daily bus service to and from school, the after school program (lower school only), and enrichment clubs (lower school only). Milton Academy’s financial aid program does not support these optional additional programs.

Financial Aid

We are deeply committed to creating an environment that is open and accessible to outstanding and qualified applicants regardless of their families’ financial circumstances and we strive to meet 100 percent of the demonstrated need for each student we enroll; Milton does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, handicapped status, sexual orientation, religion, or national or ethnic origin.

Financial Aid Budget

$14.5 million

How to Apply for Financial Aid

Families who wish to apply for financial aid must submit a financial aid application before January 31. To get started, please go to the Financial Aid Application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. It is mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. The submission fee is $60.

You may find these instructions to complete the financial aid application at Clarity helpful. If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available as well as email support at or 206-210-3752, in both English and Spanish.

Financial aid information is included with all admission packages, and awards for accepted students will be communicated along with the admission decision on March 10.

Determining Need For Financial Aid
Milton Academy looks at many factors in order to assess need. Milton defines “need” as the difference between the total cost of attendance (tuition, books, etc.) and a family’s ability to pay that cost. The need assessment is based upon income and family expenses, assets and liabilities, family size, cost of living and the number of children for whom a family must pay tuition. Milton expects that all parents who seek aid will be employed, unless they are caretakers for children under the age of five, provide live-in care for an elderly dependent, or have a prohibitive disability. In the case of divorced or separated parents, both natural parents are required to complete financial aid applications, and the income and assets of both parents (and new spouses, if any) are taken into consideration.

Although families must reapply for financial aid each year, a family should expect that grants would be renewed at the original level of funding unless there is a significant change in demonstrated need.

We hope that families will not be discouraged by the costs of independent education or by the process of applying for financial aid. If you are uncertain about your eligibility for aid or have questions about the process, we urge you to contact the Office of Financial Aid at 617-898-2239.

Current Families

Families reapplying for aid: Milton will review your aid application each year; you must reapply by January 15. If there is no significant change in your family’s financial situation, you can expect a comparable aid assessment from year to year. Milton will not review aid applications for the upcoming year prior to the full payment of your tuition and fees for the current academic year. Milton Academy communicates financial aid assessments for current students in May.

Families applying for aid for the first time: You must apply by January 15 and demonstrate that your financial circumstances have changed significantly since your initial enrollment. A cover letter explaining your change in circumstances must be submitted to the director of financial aid by this deadline as well.
