Tuition and Fees

Investing in Education

As a private, independent school, Eastgate Academy is entirely funded through investment from families and members of the community. The founding families have secured investment from the community to cover facility costs and capital expenses. The following fees are paid by students’ families and contribute to staff salaries, instructional materials and educational programs.
One-time admissions expenses

Application fee: $100 per student (non-refundable), paid at the time of online application submission. This covers the cost of the admissions assessment.

Registration deposit: $1000 per student, due upon enrollment to secure a place at the school. This amount is non-refundable but will be applied towards tuition.

Bond: $10,000 per family, paid upon enrollment. The bond is an investment in the growth and development of the school. It is reimbursed to the family at the end of the school year in which the last child leaves the school.

We offer discounted tuition for siblings: a 5% discount for the second child and a 10% discount for any subsequent siblings.

Financing options

Tuition is payable in full on July 1 of each year, or in twelve monthly installments via pre-authorized payment from July 1 to June 1.

Many financial institutions are willing to provide Line of Credit financing for the bond with interest only payments. For example, the cost for an interest-only line of credit loan with an interest rate of 4% is $34 per month.
