We are committed to making an Elgin Academy education accessible to all qualified students regardless of financial means. Financial aid is awarded to students at all grade levels (except Preschool and Prekindergarten) and is decided on the basis of need and availability of funds. Each year, Elgin Academy awards more than $1.4 million dollars in need-based financial aid. Approximately 30 percent of students who attend the Academy currently receive some level of financial aid. Financial Aid Grants can cover up to 80% of the tuition cost.

You may ask yourself, can my family afford an EA education? Elgin Academy focuses on adding quality students and families regardless of financial means. Many middle and upper income families assume they would not qualify and forego the aid application process. We encourage you to contact our office through e-mail, our online inquiry form, or by calling the Admission Office at (847) 695-0303 to find out more about affording an independent school education for your child.
