Financial Aid

St. John’s is committed to providing each child with a quality education. Tuition rates are set each year by the Board of Trustees and reflect a desire to provide an education accessible to the greatest diversity of families.

St. John’s offers Financial Aid on a need basis. In order to determine the amount of need fairly, St. John’s uses School and Student Services by NAIS (SSS).  After compiling parent supplied information, SSS determines a suggested financial contribution.  The St. John’s Financial Aid Committee then reviews the SSS recommendation and aid is awarded on the basis of need, school policy, and the availability of funds. Specific financial aid funds are also designated for active St. John’s Episcopal Church members.

Important Financial Aid Dates:

November 1 – SSS opens to receive Financial Aid applications.

January 31 – SSS Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) must be completed and submitted to SSS.

February 15 – All supporting tax documents must be uploaded to SSS, including a Letter of Explanation detailing financial circumstances, including:

  • An explanation of how much you believe you can contribute and why.
  • A detailed explanation of any extenuating or unusual circumstances which have caused you to apply for financial aid, or would support a request for aid beyond what SSS recommends.
  • Explain, in detail, any unusual expenses listed on your SSS application.  (Tuition, camps, club memberships, and all non-essential items are not considered an unusual expense)
  • If you or your spouse’s salary is $0, explain why.
  • An explanation of income other than wages; any dividend/interest earnings; and, other available resources, if applicable.
