Tuition 2019-2020

Dear AOS Parents,

We are thrilled to have reached the halfway point of our sixth year as a school.  When we opened our doors in 2013, we did so with the intention of providing an exceptional, Christian, affordable education for families from all over the Atlanta area.  Toward that end, we have built top-notch facilities in which every scholar has access to a technology-infused curriculum.  In the last three years alone, we added a multi-million dollar wing to our building which includes a Coding Lab.  We also enlarged the Multipurpose Room and Cafeteria, doubling it in size, and equipping it with a massive 195 inch video wall.

We have attracted and retained some the best and brightest teachers in the state by significantly increasing teacher pay and by improving our academic offerings over the last two years.  We now have a full-time technology teacher and librarian.  Coupled with continued investments in the quality of our academic programs, we believe that AOS is delivering on its promise of providing an elementary school education and experience at the highest possible level.

From the start, we have worked hard to keep our tuition affordable.  In fact, the parent contribution to the overall cost of tuition has remained the same for three years, despite rising annual costs and the extraordinary costs associated with our many improvements.  In order for us to continue providing the highest quality education in the finest facilities with as many enhanced student services as possible, we will be raising the parent portion of tuition for the 2019–2020 academic year by $500:

This modest annual tuition increase will assist AOS in continuing to offer the quality of education and experience that you and your scholar have come to expect.  Thanks to the continued generosity of our scholarship funding, qualifying first- through sixth-grade parents will still pay only one-third of the actual cost of tuition while qualifying pre-kindergarten and kindergarten parents will pay less than one-quarter.

Also beginning in the next academic year, AOS will begin purchasing school supplies for all students.  A school supply fee will be assessed. This will ensure that all scholars have what they need when school begins in August, while keeping you out of the long lines during back-to-school shopping season.
