ST. PAUL'S FINANCIAL AID PROGRAM
We are committed to making a St. Paul's education accessible to students from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. The purpose of the St. Paul’s Episcopal School financial aid program is to enroll students who would be unable to attend St. Paul’s without financial assistance and would, by their attendance at the school, potentially gain life opportunities that they would not otherwise have. Additionally, these students’ achievements may be inspirational to other students, and their participation in the school community will broaden the overall student experience.
Financial Aid Guidelines
St. Paul’s does not grant academic or athletic scholarships. All awards are based on demonstrated financial need, and are revised on an annual basis. The maximum financial abatement is 85% of tuition for students who meet the criteria for that level of assistance. Both the number and size of tuition abatement grants are limited by the School’s financial resources. In the administration of its financial aid program, St. Paul’s adheres to the Principles of Good Practice of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) member schools.
Abatement may be granted to students in grades 6-12 who meet the academic requirements for admission as well as other requirements.
Please note: Both parents of a student applying for aid must be employed.
Information for Divorced and Separated Parents
For applicants with divorced or separated parents, the financial aid committee will consider the assets of both biological parents, if living, before making any award. If the custodial parent has remarried, we also consider the assets of the step-parent, bearing in mind the obligation to his or her own biological children. A 2012 W-2 and 2011 Federal Income Tax return must be submitted separately by each parent and step-parent and will, of course, be held in strict confidence.
A completed Financial Aid application and required documents must be received by Elizabeth Gregory no later than February 8, 2013. Materials will be reviewed by the Faculty Financial Aid Committee, who will send recommendations to the St. Paul’s School Board of Trustees Financial Aid Sub-Committee for final approval. Recipients of tuition abatement may then meet personally with representatives from the Faculty Financial Aid Committee.
