Tuition and Financial Aid

A St. Andrew’s education is a significant investment in your child’s future. While it is our goal to make a St. Andrew’s education accessible for all qualified students, the school is unable to meet the full needs of every family. Families applying for financial assistance bear the primary responsibility to pay the tuition and all additional costs to the best of their ability. On average, the awards cover approximately 80% of demonstrated need.

In 2014-2015, $3,000,000 in financial assistance was awarded to 53% of the St. Andrew’s student body. Please note, financial aid decisions are made independent of admission decisions. Often the number of qualified applicants exceeds the resources available. Therefore, it is possible that some students may be placed on a financial aid waitlist.Financial aid covers tuition and in the case of boarding students, tuition, room, and board. Additional expenses, such as books and field trip fees are the responsibility of the family.
