Tuition and Affordability
At St. Anne's Episcopal School, we understand that planning for and investing in an independent school education requires a significant and thoughtful commitment. This process can be challenging and complex. Our Admission and Business offices are also prepared and committed to helping you explore and navigate this process for your family.
An integral part of our mission is to promote and maintain socio-economic diversity among our student population. Providing financial assistance to families who are unable to meet the full cost of tuition is one way we can attract and maintain very strong students and build on our community.
Need-Based Financial Aid
In the 2016-2017 school year, 43% of our students received approximately $930,000 in financial assistance. The average financial aid award was $7,600. Our robust Financial Aid program helps families afford the cost of a St. Anne's education.
The Financial Aid program is predicated on the school's belief that a family bears the primary responsibility for financing a child's education. Most families will need to adjust their spending priorities and carefully manage their assets; however, we recognize that many families will also need outside assistance even with careful management of household expenses. We encourage you to learn more about the many ways to bring the cost of an independent school education within your reach.
Middle School Scholarships
In addition to St. Anne's need-based financial assistance, we offer several scholarships for new Middle School students who are entering grades 5 through 8:
1. Commmunity Merit Scholarships
Two $7,500 Merit Scholarships for new Middle School students (Grades 5-8) who will benefit from and contribute to our community.
2. U.S. Service Scholarship
One $7,500 scholarship for a new Middle School student who has immediate family that serves or has served in one of the five brances of the U.S. Military and its Reserve units. Candidates must have demonstrated need. Nominations and applications are now requested for the 2017-18 academic year! Learn more.
