Many believe that tuition covers the expense of running Philips Academy, but that is far from true. Tuition covers less than 80% of the operating budget. The remainder must be funded by those who are willing and able to make a gift.
To provide our students with the academic, occupational and social skills needed to be self-reliant, confident and contributing members of their communities, donations must bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of this life-centered education.
Your financial gift helps make up the difference, allows us to enhance the educational experience for our students, and enables us to keep tuition as low as possible and allow students to attend who might not otherwise have the financial resources to do so.
We also have been able to provide scholarship assistance to 30-40% of our families each year. There is a tremendous need for more scholarships so deserving students can attend our programs.
Thank you for making a difference in the life of a child!
