WSA students on a sunny day in April

We are thankful to all the families who entrust their child’s educational journey to us. We are committed to providing an outstanding education that will continue to support and nourish each student throughout the rest of their life. In return, we hope that each child leaves their own unique imprint at West Sound Academy that lasts long after they graduate. 

Tuition for the 2023-2024 school year is $28,240.

When considering West Sound Academy for your child, please know that we serve a wide range of economically diverse families.

Sliding Scale Tuition Model

We know that an independent school education is a significant investment in the future of your child. We are devoted to making a West Sound Academy education as accessible as possible through our Sliding Scale Tuition model. 

We do not offer traditional scholarships or financial aid, nor do we conform to a “one-size fits all” tuition model. We mindfully consider the realistic financial circumstances of each individual family to arrive at a reasonable, and affordable price point, which will allow West Sound Academy to benefit from the unique presence of your child. We encourage prospective families whose children have a genuine desire to learn, to submit an application for placement on the sliding scale. 

Our admissions process is need-blind and an application for placement on the sliding scale will not impact an admission decision. However, any placement on the scale does not cover the full expense of a West Sound Academy education. As an independent school, West Sound Academy does not receive any federal or state funding and relies solely on tuition, program revenue, and fundraising to operate. When your family is placed on the sliding scale, we are committing to fundraising the difference between the actual cost and your tuition. We do this because we want to make a West Sound Academy education as accessible as possible.

Application and Deadline

Families wanting to be placed on the sliding scale complete the application online through the FACTS portal. 

Any family can submit an application for placement on the sliding scale even if they have not done so in prior years.

The priority deadline for applications is February 15. After that date, applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
