Tuition Assistance

We recognize that affording a Saint Andrew's education can be challenging at times, and we strive to make our enriched school experience accessible to qualified students from families that embrace the mission of the school.  To support our families, Tuition Assistance is available based upon a family's demonstrated financial need. Although we may not be able to fulfill all requests for assistance, we endeavor to accommodate as many families as possible to the extent that funds are available.

During the 2015-16 school year, Saint Andrew's awarded $393,000 in tuition assistance to 44 students and 33 families, representing 11.6% of the overall student body. Tuition assistance awards range in size from 6% to 75% with the average grant comprising approximately $10,000 of tuition and fees, including after care, field trips and other programs.

All requests for Tuition Assistance, related documentation and dollar amounts are held in the strictest confidence. Applying for Tuition Assistance does not affect a child's acceptance to or enrollment at Saint Andrew's.

Saint Andrew's follows the principles and procedures of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), located in Princeton, New Jersey. Parents who wish to apply for Tuition Assistance need to submit a Parents' Financial Statement, along with support materials, to SSS.  SSS analyzes the financial information submitted against standardized national norms and generates an Estimated Family Contribution, which is a third party objective assessment of what a family should be able to contribute to a child's annual education costs.

SSS provides Saint Andrew's with the Estimated Family Contribution, which the Tuition Assistance Committee then uses as a guide in evaluating applications for Assistance. The Committee determines whether a Tuition Assistance award is warranted and, if so, in what amount.

Detailed information about the SSS methodology and process can be found by going to http://sssbynais.org/parents.  If you have questions about our Tuition Assistance program, please contact the Admission Office.  
 
For the 2016-2017 school year, applicants for Tuition Assistance should submit an application and support materials to SSS by February 1st, 2016 for priority consideration.
