Tuition Assistance Program

We recognize that affording a Saint Andrew's education can be challenging at times, and we strive to make our enriched school experience accessible to qualified students from families that embrace the mission of our school.  To support our families, a Tuition Assistance Program is available based upon a family's demonstrated financial need. Although we may not be able to fulfill all requests for assistance, we endeavor to accommodate as many families as possible to the extent that funds are available.

During the 2017-18 school year, Saint Andrew’s awarded $552,000 through our Tuition Assistance Program to 63 students and 42 families, representing approximately 20% of our overall student body. Tuition Assistance Program awards ranged in size from 4% to 85%, with an average grant comprising approximately $10,366 towards tuition and fees, including after school care, field trips and other school programs.

All requests to participate in our Tuition Assistance Program, related documentation and dollar amounts are held in the strictest confidence. Applying for Tuition Assistance does not affect a child's acceptance to or enrollment at Saint Andrew's.

Saint Andrew's follows the principles and procedures of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), located in Princeton, New Jersey. Parents who wish to apply for our Tuition Assistance Program need to submit a Parents' Financial Statement, along with supporting materials, to SSS.  SSS analyzes the financial information submitted against standardized national norms and generates an Estimated Family Contribution, which is a third party objective assessment of what a family should be able to contribute to a child's annual education costs.

SSS provides Saint Andrew's with the Estimated Family Contribution, which the Tuition Assistance Committee then uses as a guide in evaluating Tuition Assistance Program applications. The Committee determines whether a Tuition Assistance award is warranted and, if so, in what amount.

Detailed information about the SSS methodology and process can be found by visiting their website: http://sssbynais.org/parents.  If you have questions about our Tuition Assistance Program, please contact the Admission Office.  
 
For the 2018-2019 school year, applicants for our Tuition Assistance Program should submit an application and support materials to SSS by February 15th, 2018 for priority consideration.
