St. Andrew’s School includes all foreseeable educational expenses on the Tuition & Fee Schedule. Tuition can be paid annually, biannually, or monthly. The Payment Plan Schedule lists the payments for each option.
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. Click here for more information on financial assistance. The FACTS application can be found at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3SRXR.
St. Andrew’s offers bus pick-up and drop-off for a fee and a free morning pick-up at a predetermined location in Sandfly, Midtown, Southbridge, and on Skidaway Island. Contact Amanda Groves at email@example.com with any bus questions or to find out the centralized locations for each distinct area of Savannah.
St. Andrew’s School welcomes families from all over the world. We currently enroll students from Australia, France, Bahrain, England, China, and more. Our teachers, students, and families appreciate the rich cultural mix that our international families bring to our community and school. We are happy to assist these families through the admissions process.
St. Andrew’s School is authorized to issue F1 visas. We strive to guide international students through their academic, social, and cultural success. Through the years we have created a safe and nurturing community for our students. To hear from our Chinese international students click here.
