Cape Cod Academy Announces New Personalized Tuition Program
Cape Cod Academy is Now Affordable for All
Cape Cod Academy (CCA), an independent, co-educational, college preparatory school serving students from kindergarten to grade 12 on Cape Cod, is pleased to announce its new Personalized Tuition Program. It is an income- and resources-based method of determining a personalized tuition for each family, designed to ensure access to CCA.
Recognizing economic diversity enriches the educational opportunity for all families and is critical to the health of the school, CCA is pleased to launch this new program effective immediately. The Personalized Tuition Program opens the doors to families from a wide range of economic backgrounds that may have been reluctant to apply to the school because of cost. This program considers a family’s income and expenses and determines tuition based on a percentage calculation. Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year will be determined on a sliding scale ranging from $4,900-$32,000 for the year. An additional sibling discount will be made available to families with multiple children.
“This new initiative is two-fold,” said Jeff Thompson, CCA’s Director of Admission and Advancement. “It is intended to address challenges faced by families who seek a superior education yet lack the financial resources. It also enriches the experience of every student attending CCA by providing a diverse learning environment inside and outside the classroom, where students can embrace and celebrate their differences.”
“Diversity opens up opportunities for all of us,” said Chad Small, Interim Head of School. “It is a pillar of the school and reflected in our current enrollment, including our population of students from China. The school’s goal is to be affordable to all admitted students, regardless of their economic background. We believe this new initiative is a great way to give even more families access to the best educational experience for college-bound students on Cape Cod.”
Founded in 1976, CCA is located on a 46-acre campus that features outdoor classrooms, multiple athletic fields, two gymnasiums, tennis courts, state-of-the art science labs, music pavilions, multiple art studios, photo labs, outdoor pool, and a black box theatre. Our challenging and dynamic college preparatory program is enriched by opportunities in the arts, athletics, and community service. CCA has a vibrant population of international students who bring a cross-cultural perspective and added engagement to our domestic students, widening their awareness of different values and beliefs and improving social skills.
