Affording CCA

A CCA education is affordable.

This past school year, 42% of CCA families received Financial Aid awards.

We strive to make a Cape Cod Academy education affordable to all accepted students. We have a healthy financial aid budget and do our best to distribute financial aid grants to meet the needs of all income levels.
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.

Process for Applying or Re-Applying for Financial Aid

Cape Cod Academy works with families to help make a CCA education accessible to accepted students who demonstrate a strong desire to attend. CCA assumes that every family will finance their child(ren)’s education to the extent that they are able and need-based financial aid is available to qualifying families. We also recognize every family's financial situation is different and therefore encourage families to contact our Admissions staff to discuss additional payment options and financial aid.
