Affording KUA

We know that an independent school education is a significant investment. Our goal is to welcome students who embody the school’s core values, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. We encourage any family in need of assistance to apply for financial aid. A family’s share of the cost of a KUA education is determined through thoughtful consideration of a number of factors and not based on income level alone.

Financial-Aid Deadlines

While we will continue to accept applications after the February deadline, it is strongly recommended you submit your financial aid application prior to February 1. Families will be notified of their financial aid awards in conjunction with their admission decision on March 10.
