Fundraising events, the Scrip Program, and parent service are a part of independent school life and help to bridge the difference between the tuition charged and the actual cost of educating our students.

SIBLING DISCOUNT POLICY
Alverno Heights Academy is pleased to be on of the few independent schools to offer families a “Sibling Discount.” At the upper school the policy applies when a family has two or more daughters attending Alverno at the same time. This policy, created by the Board of Trustees in June 2011, supports the concept of Alverno as a family- inclusive and mutually supportive.
Families with two or more children enrolled at the lower school will receive a $300 discount for child #2, #3, etc. as evidenced by the tuition chart above. Additionally, Alverno will extend the “Sibling Discount” policy to families with a daughter enrolled at the upper school and another child enrolled at the lower school. Similarly, a $300 discount will be given to child #2, child #3, etc.
o Parents and students will have to complete all family obligations on time.
o Tuition must be always current
o Families must be supportive of all school policies.
Each family is required to earn $250.00 in rebates from your Scrip purchases between June 1, 2023 through May 31, 2024. You may also choose to buy-out all of your Scrip commitment for $300.00. After fulfilling your commitment to $250 in Scrip rebates, 50% of your additional earnings will be credited towards the 2024-2025 Student Fee.
