At CA, our tuition is as comprehensive as possible so that each student enjoys a challenging and rewarding experience. Our tuition covers educational expenses such as classroom supplies, daily lunch, field trips, yearbooks, team uniforms, personalized college counseling, and more.

  • For Grades 5-8: Tuition includes the cost of a student iPad; families are responsible for a keyboard and case. 
  • For Grades 6-12: Families are responsible for the cost of books/e-books (approximately $150 to $200 per year). Incoming students in Grade 9 are also responsible for bringing their own laptop to school, or loaning a laptop from the school if their family receives financial aid; learn more about CA's 1:1 device program.

Financial Aid
Our priority is for all admitted students to have the opportunity to attend CA regardless of their family's economic situation. We encourage families to consider Colorado Academy for their students and apply for tuition assistance if the tuition is out of reach.

For the 2023-2024 school year, CA offered over $5 million in financial aid to qualifying families, supporting 182 families in the school. 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 liabilitieslearn more. As financial aid is treated as a gift from the school, there are no repayment requirements. Given that 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 complete the Financial Aid Application by the February 15 deadline. Families applying for aid after the deadline are considered for the financial aid waitlist.

Financial Aid Checklist & Timeline

List of 3 items.


    The Application for Financial Aid is separate from the Application for Admission, although the two application cycles overlap. After January 1, complete the Financial Aid Application through Clarity Financial.

    Note: In an effort to simplify the financial aid process and offer a user-friendly experience for families, Colorado Academy has shifted to the Clarity application portal for the 2024-2025 school year. If you've applied for financial aid at CA in the past using SSS or FACTS, please transition to Clarity Financial for this year's application.
    For an introduction to the Clarity portal, you are welcome to view this recording from Clarity's webinar designed for parents/guardians (Passcode: VFvSTm@4). Please review  Clarity’s Family Application Guide for additional information. 

    If you're reapplying for an ACE scholarship through FACTS, you do not need to fill out an additional application through Clarity Financial, as long as you add Colorado Academy as a recipient.
  • 2022 AND 2023 TAX RETURNS / W-2's | Before Feb 15

    After January 1, you may share copies of the following documents to Clarity Financial:
    • 2022 tax returns and W-2 statements, as well as 2022 K-1 and business tax returns, if applicable
    • 2023 tax returns and W-2 statements, as well as 2023 K-1 and Profit and Loss Statements, if applicable

    If you will not be able to file your 2023 tax return by February 15, we will still process your financial aid application without the 2023 tax return, as long as we have received a copy of your 2023 W-2 statements, your 2023 Profit & Loss Statements from your business if you are self-employed, and your 2022 tax return by the February 15 deadline. You may submit your 2023 tax return, after February 15, once it is finalized.


    After the Admission Committee makes decisions, a separate Financial Aid Committee reviews the completed financial aid applications for current and newly admitted students. If families meet the February 15 application deadline, financial aid awards are offered at the same time as admission decisions.
