Financial Aid
Our priority is for all admitted students to have the opportunity to attend CA, regardless of their family's economic situation; please do not let the cost of tuition deter you from considering Colorado Academy.

For the 2020-2021 school year, CA offered over $3.9 million in financial aid to qualifying families, supporting more than 19 percent of the student body. Financial aid is awarded to current and newly admitted students on the basis of demonstrated need, as determined by factors such as income, family size, assets, and liabilities. As financial aid is treated as a gift from the school, there are no repayment requirements. However, as circumstances and tuition change each school year, families are required to complete the financial aid process on a yearly basis. 
 
First priority is given to families who submit all of their financial information by the February 15 deadline. Families applying for aid after the deadline are considered for the financial aid waitlist.
