Tuition Assistance is awarded on the basis of need, number of applicants and available funds.  Acorn Hill follows a careful process and all
applications are reviewed on an individual basis. Accordingly, special circumstances that can profoundly affect a family’s financial resources are considered in an appropriate manner.

Tuition Assistance is available for all Five Day classes at Acorn Hill. It does not apply to our Parenting or Summer Programs. Tuition Assistance decisions are sent out with the admission packet.

Tuition Assistance applications are due February 1 for first round consideration. Please send your completed application to Monica (

Acorn Hill offers a Diversity Grant to children of African descent. We invite families of qualifying children to apply. The Diversity Grant is available for each child enrolled and may cover up to $3,000 of tuition for the half day program and $4,500 for the full day program.

This grant is given without consideration of financial need; therefore, if additional financial assistance is needed, families can also apply to the Tuition Assistance Program. Please send your completed application to Monica ( You will be notified of your tuition reduction with the admissions packet.
