The best value
Dock Mennonite Academy recognizes that you have a wide range of options for your child's education. While you can spend less than what it costs to attend Dock, you can also spend a lot more. Our commitment is to always be the best value, so that all families who seek a Christian education can achieve one.
Our commitment is to be affordable for all families seeking a Christian education. Our school provides more than $1 million annually in tuition assistance to families—including tuition-paying families that also receive partial church assistance. Applications for tuition assistance may be obtained from the Admissions Office
Some congregations provide financial assistance to families by paying all or part of the tuition cost. Contact your congregation to inquire about the assistance they may provide.
- Tuition is paid through FACTS. Families may choose payment dates of either the 1st or 15th of the month, August through May.
- The August payment confirms enrollment.
- A $1,500 “multi-student” discount will apply for each additional student from families across both campuses. Early childhood students and families receiving MEP rates are not eligible.
- A 2% discount will apply when tuition is paid in full by August 15.
Our commitment is to be affordable for all families seeking Christian education through tuition assistance and financial aid grants. Dock provides financial grants or discounted rates to over two-thirds of our students. Grants are need-based and range from $500 to several thousand dollars per student per year. Our school distributes more than $1 million in financial aid to families each year.
Financial aid grants are made available through the generous donations of alumni, parents, grandparents, friends of the school, and local businesses. Dock also receives grant monies through the generosity of local businesses to fund scholarship opportunities via the PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit Act.
Through financial contributions from our donors, we can help open the door to new experiences for students wishing to attend Dock Mennonite Academy. Our scholarship funds help students integrate into the community through their involvement in academics, music, drama, sports, and other student activities.
In addition, students from Mennonite congregations often receive support from their church through the Mennonite Education and Congregational Partnership Plans. These Mennonite congregations play a vital role in helping to keep Dock affordable.
In summary, three major revenue sources are helping to control tuition costs:
1. Individuals contributing to the Dock Fund
2. Congregations participating in the Mennonite Education and Congregational Partnership Plans, and
3. Businesses participating in the PA EITC program to fund scholarship opportunities. If your business is interested in participating in the EITC, please contact Director of Development Robert D. Rutt at 215.362.2675, ext. 116, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The majority of Dock students benefit from tuition assistance, sibling discounts, tuition discounts, and/or help from their congregations. Families in the Montgomery, Bucks, Lehigh, and Philadelphia County, PA who view affordability as a determining factor for enrollment are strongly encouraged to contact the Admissions office with their tuition and financial planning questions.
