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 $2.5 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. Long 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.
