TUITION ACCESSIBILITY PROGRAM
TAP = Tuition Accessibility Program
Education is an investment, but it doesn’t have to be out of reach. We can make The Davis Academy accessible for your family. Ask How!
We recognize that choosing the right school for your child is among the most important decisions you will ever make as a family. We also recognize that investing in a private school education requires careful financial planning.
As a school, we seek to admit talented and motivated students, regardless of family resources, and we believe that economic diversity enriches the educational opportunities for all of our families. We strive to ensure that tuition is not a barrier to enrollment, and we encourage families who believe that The Davis Academy may be a good fit for their family to TAP into Davis and learn more about our TUITION ACCESSIBILITY PROGRAM.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Lisa Mirsky, Director of Admissions at email@example.com or 678-527-3300 to learn more.
