  • Luddy Schools Scholarships: Tuition assistance is available for students in hardship situations. Eligibility is calculated through a formula that examines income, tax documents, and expected family contribution. Scholarship grants are evaluated and awarded by the Thales Academy Board of Directors following a student’s acceptance to Thales Academy. Contact your local Thales Academy campus for more information.
  • North Carolina Opportunity Scholarships: Up to $4,200 in tuition assistance is available to eligible students who are chosen through a lottery system. Interested families may apply during the month of February and must re-apply each year. Find more information, eligibility requirements, and an online application here. (Note: This scholarship is available at North Carolina campuses only. Thales Academy does not accept vouchers.)

It is our mission to make a Thales education attainable for all students. In the 2020-2021 academic year, nearly 200 students received tuition assistance. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the Luddy Schools Scholarship Fund, we welcome your contributions here. Thank you for your generosity!

Why not run a high quality school at low cost using modern management principles and technology?
