Tuition and Financial Assistance

A CCA education is affordable.

Financial assistance is available to families who qualify.

Cape Cod Academy is fully committed to enrolling a diverse student body; diverse in terms of interests, talents, race, ethnicity, and economic background.  To this end, the Academy has developed a financial assistance program dedicated to promoting access to the school to all qualified students, regardless of family financial circumstances.  While we firmly adhere to the principle that the primary responsibility for the costs associated with a student's education lies with the family, we do understand that financial assistance will be necessary to enable some students to attend the Cape Cod Academy.  The goal of our financial assistance program is to bridge the gap, as best we can between what a family can reasonably be expected to contribute and the costs associated with attending Cape Cod Academy.  Financial assistance awards are considered grants and are not expected to be repaid.

Applying for Financial Assistance
Cape Cod Academy is eager to encourage all qualified students to apply to the school. We are actively committed to maintaining a school community of students from diverse backgrounds and experiences and our extensive financial assistance program helps to make a CCA education accessible for those who demonstrate financial need.

The school endeavors to treat all families fairly, equitably, and consistently in its consideration of requests for financial assistance and in its distribution of awards.  In order to determine a family's eligibility to receive financial assistance in a fair and equitable manner, Cape Cod Academy requires all applicants for financial assistance to complete the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) with the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) each year of matriculation.
Cape Cod Academy subscribes to the National Association of Independent Schools' (NAIS) School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) program, which determines a family's need and their expected family contribution (EFC).  Financial assistance decisions are made independently from admission decisions and do not affect an applicant's chances for admission.  Cape Cod Academy adheres to the NAIS Principles of Good Practice with regards to its financial assistance process.
Parents of financial assistance applicants need to complete the Parents Financial Statement (PFS) using the CCA code 2074. (In the case of divorced or separated parents, the equivalent form from the non-custodial parent must be submitted as well.) The School also requires that applicants submit a copy of all federal IRS forms filed in the previous year as well as the most recent W2 forms. For more information about SSS, call 800-344-8328 or visit their website at


Financial assistance responses will accompany admissions decisions.

The Cost of Cape Cod Academy
Cape Cod Academy fees include tuition for day students. Our financial assistance program helps close the gap between the cost of attending Cape Cod Academy and a family’s ability to fund their child’s education. Further information regarding fees for the various programs offered at Cape Cod Academy may be found on our website at
Payment Schedules
A student’s entire tuition bill may be paid in a single payment due by July 1, 2019 directly to CCA. Alternatively, families may choose to split their bill into two installments, with the first payment due by July 1, 2019 (60 percent of the balance) followed by a second payment due by December 1, 2019 (the remaining balance due).  Families may also arrange to pay their child’s tuition bill utilizing a ten-month installment plan. All families are expected to utilize Smart Tuition, our tuition management system, to pay tuition in their preferred time frame, with all tuition expected to be paid in full no later than March 15, 2020.  Should you have specific questions related to student accounts, please feel free to contact the Business Office.
Tuition Refund Insurance Policy
The tuition refund insurance policy is included in the enrollment packet. If a student leaves CCA during the school year, a prorated amount for tuition paid for the remainder of the school year will be partially reimbursed for unused school days based upon the criteria outlined in the policy for medical or voluntary withdrawal or involuntary dismissal. Cape Cod Academy strongly recommends all families enroll in this plan.
Financial Aid/Tuition Assistance awards are grant awards and do not need to be repaid. In addition to need-based financial aid, Cape Cod Academy awards several merit-based scholarships each year.
