→ The student is a member of a household whose total annual income meets the requirements of the Accountability Act.

→ The student was eligible to attend a public school in the preceding semester or is starting school in Alabama for the first time.

Lincoln Academy Tuition Information

The Board of Directors has approved the following tuition for the school year 2017-2018.

The full tuition for the year will be $6,500 for elementary and $8,500 for middle school. The tuition payment is for daily instruction only and does not include cost of food and meals at the school. Food and meal costs will be covered by Lincoln Village Preservation Corporation separately.

The Board of Directors has adopted a policy that requires students to make minimum monthly payments of $50 per family for 10 months throughout the school year. The student’s family may complete applications for scholarships from the Scholarship Granting Organizations; however, the family must be current on the $50 per family payment prior to being awarded a scholarship. The student’s family is responsible for payment of this amount from their personal funds and no one may pay the family’s portion for them.

As stated above, the student may apply for a scholarship from the Scholarship Granting Organization based upon filling out appropriate paperwork and determination of eligibility based upon requirements of the  Scholarship Granting Organization. All information must be received prior to acceptance into Lincoln Academy.

We look forward to working with you and your family to provide a quality educational experience for your student.

Respectfully, 

Lakshmi Nallamala, Executive Director
