  • St. Paul's Tuition Assistance 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 Tuition Assistance 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.

    Tuition Assistance 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. Both the number and size of Tuition Assistance grants are limited by the School’s financial resources. In the administration of its Tuition Assistance program, St. Paul’s adheres to the Principles of Good Practice of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) member schools.

    Assistance may be granted to students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 who meet the academic requirements for admission as well as other requirements. Prospective parents may inquire through the Admissions Office about the availability of assistance for the grade their child is entering.

    Please note the following policies before applying for Tuition Assistance:
    • A student going through the Admissions process must be accepted to the School before his or her Tuition Assistance application will be reviewed by the Tuition Assistance Committee.
    • All parents/guardians applying for Tuition Assistance must be employed.
    • Current families must be in good standing with the Business Office before being considered for Tuition Assistance.
    • For a current student to receive Tuition Assistance he or she must be in good standing, academically, as stated in the Student-Parent Handbook. In addition, the Tuition Assistance Committee will review grades at the close of every semester and enforce academic policies put in place for students receiving Tuition Assistance.
    • The Tuition Assistance Committee will review any discipline infractions of students receiving Tuition Assistance at the close of every semester and enforce Tuition Assistance discipline policies.
    • Lack of confidentiality, including discussing the terms, or amount of Tuition Assistance will be grounds for Tuition Assistance removal.
    Information for Divorced and Separated Parents
    For applicants with divorced or separated parents, the Tuition Assistance Committee will consider the assets of the parent(s) responsible for and/or contributing toward tuition. If the financially responsible parent has remarried, we also consider the assets of the step-parent, bearing in mind the obligation to his or her own biological children. 2022 and 2023 W-2s, 2022 Federal taxes, including all schedules, and 2022 State taxes must be submitted separately by each parent and step-parent and will be held in strict confidence.
