Financial Aid

AIM Academy allocates approximately 10% of our tuition budget towards financial aid. Students in grades 1-12 are eligible to apply for these funds. Approximately 24% of our students receive tuition assistance with grants for first-time applicants ranging from $3,000-$20,000.

Financial Aid grants are awarded annually on the basis of demonstrated need as determined in part by School and Student Services (SSS). For more information about SSS calculations, please refer to the SSS by Community Brands website.

A student must be accepted for admission and enrolled before being considered for a financial aid grant. Financial aid decisions are determined by a financial aid committee based upon demonstrated need.

Families are encouraged to explore outside sources of funding, including the Children's Scholarship Fund of Philadelphia and The Charles E. Ellis Trust for Girls.

How to Apply for Aid

If you are interested in being considered for tuition assistance, please check the box requesting Financial Aid on your child’s application for admission.

Starting in October, parents may log in to the family portal on SSS by Community Brands and begin to submit the necessary forms. For help logging in to the family portal for the first time, please click here.
