Affordability

Always a Higher Purpose. Now an Even Better Value.

In 2018, Providence Academy took the lead in local private Pre-K through 12 education by reducing its tuition nearly 20% while maintaining the exceptional quality it is known for. A combination of extraordinary generosity, financial stewardship, and long-range vision has brought Providence to a position of strength that continues to make a reduced tuition possible.

Even as a Top 10 Private Pre-K Through 12 School in Minnesota, and as one of the Top 10% of Private Catholic Schools in the country, our tuition continues to be incredibly competitive to comparable Twin Cities area schools.

Tuition Assistance

Providence is committed to offering help to families in planning and making appropriate choices to afford tuition. Options include:

  • A monthly tuition payment plan, enabling families to pay tuition over a ten-month period without interest or penalty. Details of this new approach will be forthcoming in advance of enrollment.
  • Grants and awards for families demonstrating financial need.
  • Multiple-sibling discounts: 25% for a third and fourth child simultaneously enrolled, and a 50% discount for a fifth child or more simultaneously enrolled.

In 2016-2017, Providence awarded nearly $3.4 million in tuition assistance, and currently, nearly 1/3 of Providence students receive some type of financial assistance.

Financial Aid Application Process

Any qualified student entering grades K-12 who desires to attend Providence Academy may complete an application, regardless of financial resources. The financial aid application process for Providence Academy is completed through TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services), a third-party organization that collects and audits financial information.
