Applying for Financial Aid

As part of our mission to create a socioeconomically diverse learning community, St. Patrick's is committed to providing the opportunity for students from various economic circumstances to attend the Day School. St. Patrick's offers only need-based financial aid to qualified students. There are no merit awards. In support of this goal, the Board of Trustees designates funds for the Financial Aid Program each year. In 2017-2018, the school is providing approximately $2.5 million in grants to one out of five St. Patrick's students.

Independent school education is an investment and a major financial commitment. St. Patrick's strives to provide financial aid grants to all qualified applicants for admission with demonstrated need. In some cases, however, a qualified applicant may be offered admission along with a space in our financial aid wait-pool. Grants are awarded to students in the financial aid wait-pool if funds become available during the spring.

Financial Aid Process

Step 1: APPLICATION

To ensure objectivity, St. Patrick's uses Tuition Aid Data Service (TADS) to evaluate applications. Based on a family's financial information, TADS provides us with an estimated amount that your family can contribute towards educational expenses, which helps us make objective and fair financial aid decisions.

SUBMIT APPLICATION:

Currently enrolled families must submit the online financial aid application to TADS by February 16, 2018.

Applicant families must submit the online financial aid application to TADS by January 26, 2018.

Please download the application worksheet so that you may gather all necessary information prior to applying online.

You only need to complete one application, even if you have several children applying to a school. You will create a user name and password so that you can save information and return to it at a later date before submitting it. From there, select DC, St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School. You can associate your application to other schools at the end of the online application. If you have questions about the TADS submission process, you may call TADS directly at 800-477-8237 FREE for more information.

  • Supplemental Information Form, which will be provided by TADS upon completion of the on-line application.
