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.
All students who wish to receive some financial aid and/or worthy student aid from Milo Academy will need to apply through the FACTS Aid and Grant Assessment for Milo application process. You must complete a FACTS application and supply a signed copy of your 2015 IRS Form 1040 and an Form W-2 income tax statements to FACTS. Milo Adventist Academy's Scholarchip Committee will be awarding the student aid based on the submitted applications, need, and the funds available for the year. The deadline for applying for tuition assistance is the last day of July.
For more information about how to use FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, open the FACTS flyer(1.7 MB).
Students can generate additional financial support by recruiting their own sponsors. Sponsors can contribute a flat monthy amount or a one-time payment. Work Study Program sponsors can sponsor students by hours worked or commit to match earnings per specified period. Appropriate forms are available through the Business Office or on the Resources page of this web site. In accordance with IRS regulations, these sponsorship payments cannot be considered tax-decuctible contributions.
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.

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.
