Financial Aid

St. Mary’s is committed to making education accessible to students from all backgrounds, regardless of financial means. Financial Aid is awarded on the basis of need. Each year, St. Mary’s awards a significant amount of aid to enroll a student body that represents our larger community. A diverse student body encourages us all to deepen our understanding of ourselves and others. Financial aid is available for Kindergarten to Grade 8 only.
 
The school partners with School and Student Services (SSS), a financial aid tool recommended and supported by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). This company collects financial data and provides information to St. Mary’s that is reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee. Award decisions will be made as soon as all required information is received and reviewed.
 
Financial Aid Application
Cost $51 (payable directly to SSS)
 
Applications for admission are reviewed separately from applications for financial aid; however, financial aid applications are not forwarded to a committee until an application for admission is received. Do not delay in submitting an enrollment application while working on financial aid.
