Tuition & Assistance


Armbrae Academy is an independent school. We are independent in philosophy, driven by our unique mission/vision/values as outlined in our Strategic Plan: Unleash Your Potential We are also independent in the way we are managed and financed: governed by an independent board of governors and supported only through tuition payments, auxiliary income, and charitable contributions. We are not a for-profit “private school”, nor do we receive funding from any government sources.
