Financial Aid and Scholarships at Venn Academy

Venn Academy is committed to the principle that all students should learn in an environment whose diversity is representative of the community at large. It is our belief that all students directly benefit when classrooms are diverse, and inclusive.


Need based financial aid

The Venn Academy Board has approved financial aid for the 2019-20 school year. Every family is expected to contribute to the cost of their child's education to the extent they are able; financial aid is available to help bridge the gap and offset the cost of tuition. We encourage you to apply for financial aid, even if you are not sure if you can afford the cost of attending Venn Academy. Scroll down to learn how to apply for financial aid.

Scholarship Opportunities
