Financial Aid

The value of a Uchenna Academy education is a partnership between the family and the school. We hope we can discuss how a Uchenna education can work with your fiscal budget. Priority is given to applications from families who meet our tuition assistance criteria and whose children demonstrate the greatest potential to contribute to Uchenna Academy’s mission.

We support families through two streams:

  • Bursaries (based on financial need)
  • Scholarships (based on academic or athletic merit)

Bursaries (needs based)  – Applications open Jan. 1 – May 1 for the following school year

Bursaries are awarded to families based on their demonstrated financial need. Applications for tuition assistance are evaluated based on a family’s needs and the school’s funds.

Uchenna Academy uses Apple Financial Services to provide an objective analysis of a family’s financial resources. They then make recommendations directly to our charitable partner, QSLA Foundation’s Board of Directors.

We treat all requests for tuition assistance with the highest levels of confidentiality and discretion and expect all families will do the same with the decision with which they are provided.

Scholarships (merit based) – Applications open Jan. 1 – May 1 for the following school year

Scholarship recipients must sign a Scholarship Contract, which is reviewed twice in a school year. If a student does not adhere to the requirements of the scholarship contract, their scholarship is revoked.

Scholarships are awarded to students based on:

  • A student’s record of academic success (as measured by their transcript)
  • A student’s perceived special talents or potential to contribute to life at Uchenna Academy (as determined by the Board of Directors)
  • The enrollment management priorities of the school

Payment schedules

1. Deposit

The following fees are due within 2 weeks of accepting an offer of admission:

One-time enrollment fee – $3,010 per family

Deposit – $3,000

Please note the above fees are non-refundable.

2. Balance

The balance of fees can be paid three different ways:

  • Single payment due in June, receive a 5% discount.
  • Three payments due in June, September and December.
  • Nine Payments due in May-January

Payment Methods

Families can pay by pre-authorized debit or credit card (payment platform fees apply).

Please note that your child’s registration is binding for a period of one academic year; therefore, parents/guardians are obligated to pay all fees unconditionally regardless of absence, transfer, withdrawal, dismissal or force majeure.

Tuition Considerations

Second and subsequent siblings receive a 5% tuition fee discount. This cannot be combined with other discounts.


1.What type of bursaries do you offer?

We do offer bursaries to those requiring financial assistance with tuition. Full bursaries are awarded very seldomly as there is an expectation that families applying will bear some financial responsibility toward their child’s education.

Assistance is available to eligible families of both new and returning students. Amounts and eligibility are re-assessed yearly, based on family need. Since the total amount of assistance available is fixed, it’s essential that we receive applications from all families by the stated deadlines.

Please note the application for financial assistance is separate from the application for admission. If you are applying as a new student to Uchenna Academy, both application forms must be submitted in order to be considered for financial assistance.

2. How is financial aid eligibility determined?

Financial aid is offered on the basisApple Financial Services report. This includes, but is not limited to, the parents/guardians’ gross family income; net income (after taxes and other deductions); assets and liabilities; and information about dependents and other expenditures. Apple Financial Services makes recommendations based on their measure of what is possible, though not necessarily comfortable, for a family to contribute toward educational expenses. Schools assume that parents, to the extent that they are able, will bear the primary responsibility for financing their children’s education, sometimes at the expense of other discretionary expenditures.

Advancing the School Through Charitable Giving – Consider Supporting Uchenna!

Although tuition fees cover the day-to-day operating expenses of the school, it is the generosity of the Uchenna Academy community of parents, alumni, and friends that enables the school to enhance facilities, expand academic and co-curricular programs, and provide student financial assistance. Your generous donation allows Uchenna Academy to reach a more diverse student population, enhancing the world class Uchenna education and our facility. Making a financial donation to the school provides the gift of education to students who otherwise would not be able to afford an Uchenna education. Contact the Principal if you would like to discuss ways to donate.
