Founding Innovator Scholarship
Flexible Tuition Model
Locked-In Tuition Rate
The first class of New England Innovation Academy students will be distinguished as our FOUNDING INNOVATORS—students who share our vision to connect their Passion to Purpose, bring Ideas to Impact, and graduate Next Generation Innovators who leave NEIA ready to shape the world. To demonstrate our commitment to sharing this bold endeavor with you, we are offering a $15,000 SCHOLARSHIP TO EACH ADMITTED MEMBER OF THE FOUNDING CLASSES. The Founding Innovators will be instrumental in creating NEIA’s culture and community by living the mission, defining the honor code, and fostering a culture of innovative learning. This is a one-year scholarship exclusively for the 2021-2022 academic year and is separate from Flexible Tuition.
NEIA is committed to providing our innovative education to a broad and diverse range of students. Furthermore, as a human-centered design school, we have listened to your hopes and concerns about navigating the traditional financial aid process, and are pleased to offer a more mindful, dignified, and inclusive model. NEIA offers a range of tuition options with a specific number of placements in each grade. It is our shared goal for each family’s tuition level to be an amount that demonstrates the priority placed on providing an exceptional education for their children.
Our research has taught us that many families assume they wouldn’t qualify for traditional financial aid. The FLEXIBLE TUITION MODEL, a sliding-scale program, is designed to make education at NEIA affordable to families for whom a traditional financial aid structure might not be the best solution. For example, to qualify for Flexible Tuition, families with a single student attending NEIA would have an annual combined income range from $50,000 to approximately $250,000. Families with multiple children attending NEIA could adjust these numbers.
We also understand the frustration and undue burden that hidden fees and tuition increases create for families. To better serve our families, NEIA offers an ALL-INCLUSIVE TUITION MODEL—one that covers books, technology, athletics, and student life.
As an extension of our commitment to families, TUITION RATES WILL NOT INCREASE DURING YOUR TIME AT NEIA. Furthermore, when moving from NEIA’s middle school to high school, we will honor the published high school tuition rate from the time of your first year at the Academy. For example, the tuition you incur in grade 6 for the 2021-2022 academic year will be the same amount through the grade 8 academic year 2023-2024. Tuition increases will apply each year only to newly enrolled students, who will have their own locked-in tuition rate. Our goal is to simplify the process for budgeting and peace of mind, so you can spend more energy on what matters most—your child’s happiness and learning.
NEIA’s published tuition rates for the 2021-2022 academic year for day students are $38,500 for grades 6-8 and $42,500 for grades 9-12.
