More About Flexible Tuition

Flexible Tuition is determined based on an annual review process taking into consideration each family's complete financial profile. Income is only one of the factors that goes into determining a family's expected tuition contribution. Factors such as family size, income, expenses, assets, other tuition obligations, and extenuating circumstances are considered. We encourage families to apply for admission to Saint Andrew's Episcopal School regardless of their family's individual financial situation.

The Flexible Tuition application is independent of the admission application process. Both applications are due by February 1, 2024 for priority consideration. Applications will continue to be processed after this date on a rolling basis. As we move through the Flexible Tuition process to determine each family's contribution, please know that fairness and confidentiality are at the heart of this process.

Flexible Tuition Application 
Saint Andrew's partners with the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a third-party financial services provider that follows the methodology established by the National Association of Independent Schools, to collect and analyze financial information provided by families. The Flexible Tuition application process is independent of the admission process and it will not affect a student's eligibility for admission to Saint Andrew's.
