George Jackson Academy has a need-blind admissions policy, which means a family’s financial status is not considered when deciding admissions. Financial aid is determined after a child has been accepted. For 2019-2020, GJA’s tuition is $20,000.
In order to apply for aid, families must submit the George Jackson Academy Financial Aid form and tax documents. If the family does not file taxes, we request either the parent’s SSI or a letter from his/her employer.
Each family pays something, but family contribution is determined based on household income and expenses. Depending on your family’s financial situation, some families pay $20 a month, some $200. GJA is determined to keep tuition affordable for all families.
Do not let finances get in the way of applying. 100% of our students receive financial aid. Our mission is to serve the brightest students regardless of income.
