Flexible Tuition

At Gould Academy, we know that every family member is doing everything possible to make a meaningful contribution towards tuition. Need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships are designed to work in concert to create Gould’s Flexible Tuition philosophy.

Flexible Tuition is designed to bridge the gap between what a family can contribute and what it actually costs to attend Gould. Gould Academy offers Flexible Tuition on the basis of documented financial need of the family and the availability of funds. On average, 43 percent of our students received institutional aid.

It’s important to note that all financial information provided by families remains in the utmost of confidence at all times. Recipients are expected to meet the same standards of performance as other students, and families can expect that award levels will be consistent year to year as long as the financial need of the family remains the same, application deadlines are met, and the financial resources of the school remain strong.
