The NYA Experience is an Investment.

It’s much more than small class sizes and individualized attention. Our community is special, our faculty are mentors, and our students truly belong. An NYA education provides students with the knowledge and experience they need to be successful in college and in life. As you know, there is a cost associated with the attending NYA, and our goal is to provide you with the tools to help make tuition workable for your family.


Affording NYA

We offer a variety of options to make tuition payments easier for families:

Flexible Payment Plans
    • 50/50 payment plan
    • Nine month payment plan 
Tuition Remission for UNE Employees
  • NYA offers a tuition discount to the children of full-time UNE employees:
    • 20% tuition remission benefit for children of full-time UNE employees entering Grade 1 and higher.
    • Admission application fee waiver.
    • This remission is renewable each year through graduation, with proof of employment, and does not prohibit consideration for additional need-based financial assistance.
School Choice – Available in select towns
    • Qualifying standards, implementation, and amounts vary  and are set by individual towns.
Need-based Financial Assistance
    • Through our financial assistance program, we help close the gap between the total cost of an NYA education and what a family is able to contribute.
    • Unlike loans, our financial assistance is a grant that does not get paid back.
Savings Plans
Tuition Refund Insurance
    • NYA offers an optional insurance policy that provides coverage in the event a student withdraws from the Academy after entry.  Annual costs for the insurance are 2.6% of yearly tuition fee.

Please contact us if you have any questions about affording NYA.
