Innovative Urban Education in Downtown Los Angeles

Tuition & Fees

2019-2020 Academic Year

When evaluating your ability to finance your child’s education, you are likely considering several questions: Can I afford it? When is the best time to invest? What school has the best cost-to-benefit ratio? How does the school use tuition dollars? These questions are important to consider early in the process of deciding to apply and enroll your student in a private boarding school.

American University Preparatory’s tuition for residential students is $53,000/year and $32,650 for day students. This price includes living and food accommodations in the financial district of Downtown Los Angeles, academic programming, college counseling, SAT preparation, textbooks, school-activities, enrollment in the Explore Academy, access to the vast network of resources within our network partnerships, YMCA membership and weekly yoga, an inspirational, expert and devoted faculty, and more. The tuition received by AUP goes back towards providing our students the best experience and education we can offer.

To help families when the tuition seems unreachable, we have a few financial programs to help students reach their goals. First, we offer a Merit Scholarship program; second, students can apply for financial aid; and third, families can utilize services such as Tuition Loan Solutions. As you consider your options, contact us in the Admissions Office to learn more about how we try to ease your way through the process.
