Milo Adventist Academy is committed to helping teenagers meet the financial obligations of Christian education.
While some families have the financial resources to pay their students bills in cash, many others need to take advantage of other means to meet their obligations. Sources of revenue fall into three categories: cash, earnings from the students work program, and financial assistance. Discount plans are also available to some students.
Each year several students from Oregon Conference constituency, including Milo juniors currently enrolled, are awarded a $1000 tuition scholarship. To qualify for these, students must give evidence of academic promise as well as a commitment to the values which Milo Academy was established to nurture. Contact the Registrar or Admissions Office for more information on how to apply for this scholarship.

The work sponsorship program is designed to allow students to increase the amount they receive for the hours they work at MAA. Students recruit sponsors who will guarantee to sponsor them for a specific amount per hour for each hour they work at MAA or for a flat monthly amount. Hourly donations can be as little as ten cents or as high as the donor wishes. Work sponsorship brochures(438.1 KB) are available from the business office. MAA business office will report the hours worked to sponsors monthly.
In addition to providing an environment in which to develop important skills and values, the student work program at MAA allows students to earn a significant portion of their tuition through their own endeavors. Depending on job position and number of hours worked, students may earn an average of $150 to $350 per month to apply to tuition costs.
