Affording Archer

Our Commitment to Access

For the 2019-2020 school year, Archer allocated more than $4 million in Flexible Tuition. The average grant is 81% and financial assistance was awarded to 21% of the student body. We plan to continue this commitment to access, providing families with the ability to enroll who otherwise might not have been able to consider an Archer education.

Archer is committed to ensuring socioeconomic diversity in the student body and recognizes that tuition and fees are a large financial commitment for families. For many, it’s a significant barrier for entry. While it is the School's philosophy that the family bears the primary responsibility for supporting the education of their daughter, we have a Flexible Tuition Program in which interested families can apply for a “flexed” tuition based on their financial picture. The Program entails an assessment of the family’s ability to pay independent school tuition, determines if a family is eligible, and then reduces the tuition and fees required to enroll based on the amount a family can pay.
