An independent school in Middletown, DE for students in Preschool through Grade 8

Affording St. Anne's

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.

Flexible Tuition

Flexible Tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program that allows families to apply for reduced tuition. This program takes families financial circumstances into account in order to make St. Anne's education affordable to qualified students. Families will pay the amount of tuition that makes sense for their financial situation without the worry of having to repay the reduced tuition at a later time. 

In the 2018-19 school year, 44% of our students received approximately $976,515 in financial assistance.  The average financial aid award was $8,975.  Our robust Tuition Assistance program helps families afford the cost of a St. Anne's education.
