Financial aid

There are a variety of financial aid options to finance your son’s education. 

Tuition Loan Programs

There are loan programs available that help make Southern Prep an
affordable military boarding school for your family. You can learn more about our preferred loan programs below.

Southern Prep provides a structured private school education at an
exceptional value. While we are the most affordable military
academy, we understand that tuition may exceed a family’s financial resources. However, there are loan programs that can make tuition payments easier. These loan programs provide funds directly to the Academy, but give you the option to spread your payments out over a longer period of time than our tuition payment plans allow.

Please contact the providers listed below directly for current fees,
rates, and other details. Most of these are credit-based loans and may
have different standards of creditworthiness. Please check with the
providers listed below to see if you qualify.
