Affording NYA

We work with each family to identify
available resources that make an NYA
education possible for their students.

Investing in Education

The goal of the NYA financial assistance program is to help close the gap between the total cost of a North Yarmouth Academy education and what a family is able to contribute.  Nonetheless, applicants accepted for admission and qualifying for assistance on the basis of proven financial need may require more funds than available in the annual budget.

We are committed to supporting a student through graduation, provided a demonstrated need continues to exist.

*Recipients must re-apply for assistance each year by the January 15 returning family deadline.

Affording NYA

Affording NYA may be more manageable than you think.  Many NYA families take advantage of one or more of the following resources to help manage the investment in their child’s education:

  • School Choice/Town Tuition– If you live in a town that does not offer a local school option, you may be eligible for “town tuition” to put toward the cost of attending the school of your choice.  Qualifying standards, implementation and “town tuition” amounts vary and are set by the individual town.  Check directly with your town for more information.
  • NYA funded need-based financial assistance
  • FACTS Management Company–  FACTS offers 10 or 12 month payment plans
  • Your Tuition Solution– NYA refers families here for independent loan programs
  • Tuition Refund Plan– NYA offers an optional insurance policy that provides coverage in the event the student withdraws from the Academy after entry.  Annual costs for the TRP are 2.1% of the yearly tuition fee, payable prior to the beginning of school.
