Tuition and Financial Aid

The foundation of an education at St. Andrew's is an important investment in your child's future and none more rewarding. A source of tremendous pride and satisfaction comes from seeing your son or daughter become a confident and independent learner. We understand that the cost of an independent school education is a significant undertaking for many families, and one of our many goals is to establish a program that enables students to participate as members of our dynamic community regardless of financial ability, and make a St. Andrew's education accessible to qualified students. This school year alone, 53% of St. Andrew's student body received financial aid which is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. These awards are reviewed annually and are contingent upon continued demonstrated financial need, as well as good academic and social standing.

To be eligible for consideration for financial aid at St. Andrew’s School, you must complete your application online at National Association of Independent Schools - NAIS starting November 1, 2013).

NAIS has gone green and there are no Financial Aid paper applications this year!

Please note that financial aid requests are not considered until after a candidate has been accepted to St. Andrew’s School. In addition, acceptance does not automatically mean that a family’s request for financial aid will be granted.

The applications for 2014/2015 are accessible directly with SSS by NAIS (  For help with login or questions please call (800) 344-8328.

To complete your Financial Aid request, please submit copies of two years of your family’s federal income tax information to NAIS.  That is both 2012 & 2013 (form 1040, 1040EZ, or 1040A including all schedules) by February 15, 2014, and your W-2’s for 2013, can be sent to as soon as you receive them in January.  You can upload to NAIS directly.  Here is a link for an informational tutorial that can help parents along the way:
