Tuition & Fees:

GFA pledges to provide the best possible classroom experience for our students. This means well-educated, experienced faculty and low student-to-teacher ratios. We are dedicated to limiting our classrooms to no more than 10 students, even in cases where the classrooms are blended.

We value our faculty and seek to honor them and their families for their hard work and dedication. This means doing our best to provide them with a living wage.

Our fees and tuition are structured to meet all these commitments. Thankfully, the variety of scholarship options have made attendance at GFA a possibility for everyone. In many cases, these scholarships will cover 100% of tuition and fees.
