Tuition and Financial Aid

Students work together at standing desks in a classroom.

An independent school education is a significant investment, and we’re committed to making tuition and fees affordable for all families.

Mercersburg Academy enrolls exceptional students who bring tremendous energy and talent to our community and in return benefit from the Mercersburg experience. Financial barriers should never stand in the way of a gifted young person having access to a Mercersburg education, and we cover the full demonstrated financial need for any family whose child is admitted to the school.

Our ability to provide access to a diverse population of students creates an intentional and unique community where students become engaged global citizens, independent and self-directed learners, and creative and discerning thinkers.

This past school year, we awarded $9 million in financial aid to students from all demographics. Nearly half of Mercersburg families receive merit- or need-based aid, ranging from a few thousand dollars to the full cost of tuition and fees.

Applying for Financial Aid

Mercersburg Academy requires that all applicants who wish to be considered for need-based aid submit documentation through a trusted third party, Clarity. Clarity works with independent schools to offer a secure, streamlined financial aid application for families that can be completed online in 20-30 minutes. Mercersburg’s financial aid application deadline is January 31. If you are applying for financial aid, please be sure to indicate so on your application for admission.
