2017-18 Tuition and Fees

We have a lot to offer at AACS and strongly encourage our students to participate in as many school activities as possible. Rather than surprising parents with extra costs throughout the year for field trips, clubs, sports, performing arts classes and more, we include everything in our tuition and activity fee.  Parents can plan around a regular monthly payment while students can get involved in as many activities as they'd like.  See our Campus Life page to learn about the benefits of getting involved in extracurricular activities.
 
Tuition Payment Options
Monthly - The monthly payment plan begins in May and ends in April, with no regular tuition payment due in the month of January.  It is an 11 month plan.  A $300 deposit towards next year's tuition is collected in January rather than a regular tuition payment.  Note that if your child registers AFTER the month of May, your payments will be condensed into fewer months and thus will be higher.
Annual - You may pay in one single installment due on June 1st.
Semester - The semester plan has two payments.  The first is due June 1st and the second is due December 1st.

The SAGE lunch program, included within the activity fee, includes a different menu each day, consisting of hot meal choices, a salad bar, sandwich bar, soups, desserts, and a variety of drinks.  All food is prepared fresh on-site. Watch the SAGE Video here.  Our students love the food and our parents enjoy not having to worry about packed lunches or lunch money.
