Financial Aid

Averroes High School believes a student who is dedicated and driven to learn will receive a meaningful learning experience and will posses the attributes needed to be successful throughout their life. An education should be accessible to all regardless of religion, ethnic, or socioeconomic background.

We provide financial aid on the basis of demonstrated need and the financial situation of the school. Financial aid decisions are made in collaboration and agreement between the school and the parents and is independent from the admissions decisions and in no way affect a candidate’s chances for admission.
