Tuition and Financial Aid 

2021-2022 School Year

• 100% of families requesting financial aid received an award
• Over 67% of our student body received aid

ATLAS is committed to fostering an inclusive learning community reflective of New Haven’s socioeconomic diversity. We believe that diversity maximizes learning and strengthens our school community. Over 80% of our current ATLAS students receive financial aid. Financial aid is offered on the basis of demonstrated financial need and it is allocated on a yearly basis. Our financial aid awards are grants, so they do not need to be paid back.

In the 2021-2022 school year, 100% of families requesting financial aid received an award.



2023-2024 Tuition: $27,000



Apply for Financial Aid

The first round financial aid application deadline is February 17, 2023, though we strongly encourage families applying for aid to submit their financial aid application by January 17, 2023. Families applying during rolling admissions should submit their financial aid materials in tandem with their online application.

ATLAS partners with School and Student Services (SSS) to receive financial aid applications and supporting documentation.

To apply for financial aid, please complete the Parents’ Financial Statement through SSS. The  Academic Theatre Lab on Audubon Street (ATLAS) school code is 9144.

We recommend that you read through all SSS directions and materials before beginning the financial aid application. Please visit the SSS Family Resource Center to learn more.

If a family qualifies, the SSS fee is automatically waived by SSS.

If you need assistance completing the Parents’ Financial Statement, please contact the SSS Family Support Center at (800) 344-8328.
