The Value of a Mackintosh Education

Mackintosh Academy nurtures the keen minds and compassionate hearts of the gifted child in a responsive and caring community of learners.  The benefits of a Mackintosh education include:

    • Small class sizes in a friendly, safe and nurturing environment
    • Full time gifted program that addresses children’s wide range of needs, passions, and abilities
    • Accredited IB Program where units of inquiry inspire deep, trans-disciplinary understanding
    • A whole-child focus that encourages the development of EQ as well as IQ
    • A hands-on approach to learning and problem solving that bolsters creativity and innovation

Ultimately, our students mature into confident, healthy human beings inspired to contribute to a world that needs them.  Or, as we like to say, our students love to learn and learn to leave their mark.

Tuition, Aid, and Affordability

At Mackintosh Academy we understand that affording an independent school education is a stretch for many families.  Socioeconomic and ethnic diversity are important to us, and we offer Tuition Assistance to as many students as possible.

Please note:  Tuition includes books and field trips, with the exception of extended or overnight trips (such as Washington D.C. in the 5th/6th grade or middle school service trips). School supplies are a separate expense, and parents are responsible for providing supplies each year. In addition, students in grades 4-8 are required to have a laptop computer. We offer Tuition Assistance to as many families as possible.

Tuition rates for the 2016-17 school year are as follows:

We offer Tuition Assistance to as many students as possible; please read on to gain an understanding of how our process works.

Awards for 2017-18 school year are given for grades Pre-K – 8, and amounts are determined using results from a financial analysis conducted by the School and Student Services, a service of the National Association of Independent Schools. Approximately twenty-five percent of Mackintosh students receive Tuition Assistance to help cover tuition. We structure our awards by first serving those students who currently receive awards, then other enrolled students who have had a change in their financial status, followed by newly accepted students. All families receiving Tuition Assistance must reapply every year.

Although Mackintosh is not always able to meet the Tuition Assistance requests of every family, we strongly encourage families to apply in the same year for which they are attending.

Tuition Assistance information is confidential. Only the Tuition Assistance Committee will be privy to this sensitive and personal information.
