Tuition and Fees
Fredericksburg Academy diverse learning community is comprised of many different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds—and we wouldn't have it any other way. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to education at FA, and tuition is no different. We work with a highly-rated third-party to determine an affordable tuition rate for each family based on its unique financial circumstances. Indexed Tuition at Fredericksburg Academy is the area's largest tuition support program, awarding $2 million + in 2018-19.
