Sliding-Scale Scholarships

Sliding-scale scholarships are based on each family's means, making this opportunity available to more families in our community.

How does the sliding scale work?

  • Sliding-scale tuition is based on the principle that a family’s financial commitment should be inequitable proportion to its financial resources.

  • TADS, a third-party company, evaluates a family's financial data and makes recommendations to Acton Academy on where the family's ability to pay tuition lies on the sliding scale. The same financial information is asked of all parents.

  • Applying for sliding-scale tuition is optional. Families who wish to not apply for the sliding scale pay the full tuition rate.

  • In order to further close the gap between sliding-scale tuition and operating costs, Acton seeks support from grants and generous donors who support our vision. ​

Paid Apprenticeships

Middle school students participate in apprenticeships as part of their learning at Acton Academy. Mentors are more apt to offer paid apprenticeships when they know students will be using the earned money to help pay for their tuition. 


Word of Mouth bonus

$250-500 per student referred. Ask for details.

Paid in Full

$500 discount when tuition is paid in full by 8/15.


If your family has more than one child attending at the same time, the highest tuition will be paid first. Each additional child will receive a 15% discount.

ICCP - Idaho Child Care Program
