Financial Policies and Information
The San Gabriel Academy Board attempts to keep the school charge as low as is consistent with good fiscal management. We reserve the right to review and adjust charges for tuition and fees for the second semester should unstable economic conditions warrant such action.
SGA will not prorate tuition for late registrants or prolonged absences if the student receives full academic credit for work completed. (This does not apply to international students. For more information regarding international student financial policies, please refer to the International Student Handbook.)
A signed Financial Contract for the school year is required from each family.
Financial Clearance for Exams, Trips, Registration, Diploma
- Students must have financial clearance from the Business Office before they can take semester exams, or receive a graduation diploma.
- All accounts held by a family, current and past, will be considered for registration and for issuance of financial clearance to take exams. Students may be asked to settle outstanding balances at other SDA schools prior to registering at SGA.
- Financial clearance is required before students are allowed to take part in school sponsored overnight trips.
Billing Statements & Payment
A statement itemizing all charges and payments will be sent ten times during the school year. Cash, check and credit card payments are accepted.
Checks or money orders should be made payable to San Gabriel Academy and sent with the remittance portion at the top of the statement. This ensures that payment will be credited properly. All payments should be delivered or mailed to:
San Gabriel Academy
8827 E Broadway
San Gabriel, CA 91776
If a check is returned for any reason, a fee of $25.00 will be charged. A past history of returned checks for insufficient funds will require that payments be made in cash, cashier's check, money order, or debit transaction.
It is important for the school to collect payments due in a timely manner. Therefore, please note that students scheduled to graduate will not be allowed to participate in the graduation activities unless they have a "zero" balance at the end of the school year.
Members of our constituent Seventh-day Adventist churches pay subsidies to San Gabriel Academy. These subsidies allow us to discount their tuition rates. Patrons who are not members of an SDA church are required to pay the full tuition rate. Students requesting an I-20 Student Visa are required to pay a full year's tuition (international student rate), registration, and any other fees prior to receiving the I-20. For more information, see the International Student Handbook.
During the school year, there are a variety of other charges, both mandatory and optional for activities and events. These charges include, but are not limited to, transportation fees, sport fees, camping trips, off-campus field trips, class events, testing fees, banquets, and social events. Many of these events are optional and students are not required to attend or pay for the extra-curricular activity. However, we do encourage students to participate in order to develop the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of their lives.
Athletic Participation Fee
San Gabriel Academy's Athletic Department is a self-funding organization. In order to participate, students must pay an Athletic Participation Fee. This fee covers expenses such as equipment, travel costs, officials' fees, uniforms, etc.
Scholarship & Financial Aid
SGA offers the following discounts and scholarships to SGA families:
- Payment in Advance and Early Bird Discounts
