The actual cost of a Dominican Academy education is over $23,000. The difference between the actual cost and tuition is made up through continual development efforts. Families with the means to do so are encouraged to consider funding the total cost of educating a student. At the heart of this request is the concern to keep tuition as low as possible and to ensure the character of Dominican Academy.

Dominican Academy offers a select number of full- and partial-tuition merit scholarships. Dominican Academy invites students with outstanding performance on the T.A.C.H.S. (approx. 93% or higher) and excellent grade school records who have listed D.A. as their first choice to participate in our scholarship determination process. Scholarship candidates will meet a D.A. faculty or staff member for a personal interview. A teacher’s recommendation is required.
Financial aid determinations will take into account all TACHS scores, grades, and supporting materials. Interested families must submit a financial aid application electronically through School & Student Services (SSS) no later than January 17, 2020. Need-based financial aid is granted at the school's discretion on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Financial Aid Committee will finalize awards only after the SSS file is complete and supporting documentation is submitted. Financial aid determinations will be released no later than March 31, 2020. Please note that Financial Aid packages cannot exceed more than half the cost of tuition.
