Lower School Tuition and Fees


Tuition and Fees for 2021-2022 School Year

Fundraising events, the Scrip program, and parent service are a part of independent school life and help to bridge the difference between the tuition charged and the actual cost of educating our students. The quality of education at Alverno Heights Academy far exceeds tuition and fees. Students at the lower school will receive an education that allows them to excel at and above grade level.

    Sibling Discount Policy

    Alverno Heights Academy is pleased to be one of the few independent schools to offer families a “Sibling Discount.” At the upper school, the policy applies when a family has two or more daughters attending Alverno at the same time. This policy, created by the Board of Trustees in June 2011, supports the concept of Alverno as a family– inclusive and mutually supportive.

    Families with two or more children enrolled at the lower school will receive a discount as evidenced by the tuition chart above. 

    Additionally, Alverno will extend the “Sibling Discount” policy to families with a daughter enrolled at the upper school and another child enrolled at the lower school. A $300 discount will be applied to each child enrolled. 


    o   Students must attend simultaneously to receive the discount.

    o   These discounts are renewable if a minimum GPA of 2.0 is maintained.

    o   Parents and students will have to complete all family obligations on time.

    o   Tuition must be current at all times.

    o   Families must be supportive of all school policies.
