Year-round opportunities for Preschool and Junior Kindergarten

Browne Academy strives to make life easier for busy families. We know the importance of an educational environment for young children as a foundation for future academic success. We have found, however, that many families understand the importance of early education and would love to attend Browne, but struggle to decide between a traditional school calendar and the need for 12-month care. Therefore, those enrolled Preschool 3 and Junior Kindergarten families who pay for Aftercare until 6:00 PM for the school year will be eligible to attend eight weeks of the next Browne Summer Camp session (8:00 AM to 4:00 PM) at no additional cost. We hope this offer eases some of the year-round logistical and financial challenges for families of our youngest students.

Payment Plan Options and Discounts

Our Business Office works closely with families to help them budget for tuition and fees. The School’s payment schedule allows various payment options. Tuition may be paid in full by July or divided into two equal payments to be paid on July 15 and December 15. We also offer a 10-payment plan through the Blackbaud Tuition Management program, which requires payment from July to April.

Families have three options for paying their tuition and fees with Smart Tuition:
  1. Send in with mailed invoice
  2. Automatic payment from credit or debit card (convenience fee of 2.85% will be assessed)
  3. Automatic debit from and checking or savings account
If you have additional questions about paying your tuition or fees, please see the FAQs or contact Dontrel Latta, Accounting Manager, at 571-451-1000 or by email at dlatta@browneacademy.org

Sibling Discount
There is a 10% discount on the tuition for the second child enrolled at Browne and a 25% discount for each additional child enrolled from a family. The sibling discount is applied to the oldest child/highest tuition first.

Financial Assistance

Browne Academy provides need-based financial assistance to qualifying families to help offset the cost of attending the school. Awards are made for the academic year, and all families must reapply for financial assistance each year.  A family’s financial situation is not included in the criteria upon which individual students are evaluated for admission. Each family is asked to contribute financially to their child's education, which means that no award offered by Browne Academy will cover the full cost of tuition to the school. Financial aid awards can range in amount, but do not exceed 50% of tuition. At the preschool and junior kindergarten levels, financial aid is limited and no guarantees can be made that financial aid will be awarded even if a family demonstrates need.

How to Apply: We use the online service Blackbaud Financial Aid Management to process and analyze all financial aid applications. This service also provides a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information is kept confidential and results are available only to the Financial Aid Committee. 

Families interested in applying for financial aid should submit both their admission application and their financial aid application at the same time in order to receive a financial aid decision with their admission decision. This allows us to release an offer of aid at the same time as an offer of enrollment. All legal parents/guardians are required to submit financial aid application(s) for their child. Financial Aid applications will be available online in November. All tax returns and W2s for the last tax season are to be submitted along with your financial aid application. Once current year tax documents become available, please upload them to your financial aid application.
