Like most independent schools, Salisbury Academy is responsible for its own funding. Tuition serves as our primary source of revenue, but it is not sufficient to cover the total cost of a Salisbury Academy education. To remain independent, the academy cannot receive financial support from local or federal taxes. Therefore, we rely on charitable gifts to both balance the yearly budget and provide long-term financial stability for the school.
Salisbury Academy was created through the conviction of its founders who more than 20 years ago put their money where their hearts were and made gifts to hire teachers and buy books before there were any students in the classroom. Through this legacy of giving, the generous donations received from parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends have had an enormous and lasting impact on our school, our students, and our future.
