Tuition & Financial Assistance

An Out-of-Door education is an investment in your child’s academic, artistic, athletic, and personal growth. We work with families to ensure that qualified students have every opportunity to attend The Out-of-Door Academy.


We are committed to making an Out-of-Door education as financially accessible as possible. In 2017-2018 we distributed over $2 million dollars in need-based financial assistance awards and tuition remission to help bridge the gap between the cost of an Out-of-Door education and what a family can afford to pay. Over twenty-two percent of our students are recipients of these need-based funds.

We believe that belonging to a diverse school community leads to responsible and compassionate citizenship in the global community.

When you apply for admission to The Out-of-Door Academy, the enrollment decision is made regardless of the request for financial assistance. You should not hesitate to learn more about the financial assistance program and whether your family would qualify. Financial assistance enables us to fulfill our mission to build an inclusive community, allowing The Out-of-Door Academy to welcome students from all socioeconomic backgrounds.

The Out-of-Door Academy values diversity and is committed to honoring differences of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
