Dear Prospective Families,
When engaging in the school search, I understand that cost is a significant factor, but the priority should be whether the school is the “right fit” for your child. I have seen first-hand the positive transformation of students whose families focused on the right fit, and my goal is to create those opportunities here at Sewickley Academy. What I know for sure is students thrive at institutions that meet their academic, social, and emotional needs, while fostering supportive expansion of their lived experiences.
Over the years, Sewickley Academy has done a lot of serious work to create an inclusive community, reflective of the backgrounds and lived experiences of all students and families, making sure that cost isn’t a barrier to access. For the year 2020-2021, the school awarded $2.5 million in financial aid to 24% of our families. These grant awards range from $2,000 to $29,950, supporting families with annual incomes ranging from less than $16,408 to $220,000+. To determine an approximate amount of financial aid your family could receive, please refer to our Financial Aid Calculator.
I realize that discussions about personal finances can be complicated and stressful. As you engage in the admissions process and have questions, please feel free to reach out to me. All of our conversations, as well as your personal information, will be kept confidential.
Dr. Douglas W. Leek
Director of Admissions & Financial Aid
