We believe hard-working, talented students deserve exceptional educational opportunities. Through a variety of programs, we strive to make the lasting benefits of a GWA education widely available to qualified students like yours. GWA offers:
GWA takes a customized approach to tuition, considering a family's unique financial situation. There’s no specific income that automatically qualifies a family for reduced tuition at GWA, as income is only one factor considered during the determination process. Other factors include but are not limited to, family size, number of children and family assets.
The Academy partners with FAST - an advisory company that provides a need-based financial aid analysis, including a recommendation of the amount that each family can reasonably contribute toward tuition. The distribution of FAST awards is based on student need, academic and non-financial contributions of the student and his or her family, and the availability of space and funding.
GWA offers tuition relief to students who complete intra-ships by serving as peer tutors and providing technology support in the HUB. If interested in applying for one of these intra-ships, please contact Registrar, Peggy Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Available to students who are new to GWA and were previously enrolled in a Georgia public school, the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program provides tuition scholarship awards on the basis of financial need. When applying to a participating school for receipt of a GOAL scholarship, families must provide proof of eligibility. For more information visit the eligibility page on the Georgia GOAL website.
These merit-based scholarships are awarded to high-achieving students who are entering GWA in middle or upper school and who demonstrate excellence in academic, leadership or arts pursuits.
