Regarding financial aid and scholarships for the Spring 2021 semester program: Please note that merit scholarships for the 2020-21 academic year have already been awarded and financial aid is very limited. If you have questions, please contact Associate Director of Admissions Alec Wall.
It is our belief at SYA that there can be no excellence in education without the participation of students from diverse backgrounds. In a typical year, nearly 50 percent of our families receive about $2 million in grants averaging approximately 50 percent of tuition costs. SYA strives to meet the need of all admitted students who qualify for financial aid; however, we cannot guarantee that all families who qualify for financial aid will receive a grant. Families who are concerned that SYA may be beyond their means are encouraged to apply for financial aid and to look into financing options that can make SYA an affordable and realistic choice.
We understand that the decision to pay for a child’s education requires careful consideration. Decades of experience has taught us that SYA is a very sound investment, for it proves year after year to have a profoundly positive effect on our students’ personal growth, high school career and college prospects.
