Lawrence Academy Quad
The cost of an independent school education is a considerable investment for families, but we are committed to making a Lawrence Academy education available to students, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. In the spirit of Lawrence Academy’s motto, Omnibus Lucet, we believe access to education through financial aid is of vital, equitable importance.
Our Admissions Office mission charges us to create a vibrant, diverse, engaged, and inclusive community of learners. Each year, Lawrence Academy is deeply committed to bringing new and unique student voices into the school from across the United States and around the world.

Financial Aid at LA

Students working together in class...

Lawrence Academy commits to ensuring access to an independent school education by bridging the gap between family resources and educational expenses.


For the 2021-2022 academic year, 32 percent of our students received need-based financial grants, and we distributed $5.1 million in need-based financial assistance to 130 families in our school community.

When making admissions decisions, Lawrence Academy will offer space only to those students we can financially assist. If we are unable to provide financial assistance to an admissible student, that student will be placed in the wait pool until funds and a space become available.
