Tuition and Tuition Assistance

Assume that sending your child to Sandia Preparatory School is financially possible.
Sandia Prep offers tuition assistance for most income levels. In fact, 39% of our current students receive tuition assistance. Investment in elementary, middle, and high school prepares students for a lifetime of academic and career success. Moreover, independent and private schools can provide expertise in securing funding for college when the time comes.



Facts and statistics compiled by the National Association of Independent Schools:

  • A larger percentage of students at independent schools are enrolled in advanced courses than in public, parochial, and other private schools.

  • Independent school students have a greater likelihood of a student completing a bachelor’s degree or graduate degree.

  • Independent schools have low student-teacher ratios that encourage close connections with students.
