We consider tuition an investment in the future, not a commodity to seek for the lowest price. This approach, we believe, creates a school community that is more diverse and inclusive, more educationally enriching and more rewarding to all involved. Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of educating a child at UMA. We rely on fundraising efforts to bridge the gap between tuition revenue and operating costs. (Therefore, we ask families who are able to make an additional, tax-deductible contributions of $3,000 per student to do so.)
