AFFORDING SAS

AFFORDING SAS

Providing an independent-school education is a major investment in a child’s future. The cost of educating a student at St. Andrew’s School – with our dedicated and talented faculty, our comprehensive academic and co-curricular programs, and our beautiful campus –  is substantial. However, St. Andrew’s School is committed to providing need-based financial aid to families who might not otherwise be able to afford a St. Andrew’s education. St. Andrew’s has a substantial need-based financial aid budget as a result of our commitment to remaining a community school. Generally, the maximum financial aid awarded is 50% of tuition.

St. Andrew’s School utilizes the FACTS program (a secure, online application process) to evaluate financial aid applications. The St. Andrew’s School Financial Aid Committee reviews each case individually to determine awards.  For more information on financial assistance click here.
