Financial Aid

Applying for Financial Aid

As part of our mission of equity and inclusion, 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 2014-2015,  the school will provide approximately $1.9 million in grants to 19% of the student body.

Independent school education is an investment and a major financial commitment. St. Patrick's believes that all families applying for financial aid bear a responsibility to pay their children's tuition and additional educational costs to the best of their ability.

St. Patrick's strives to provide financial aid grants to all qualified applicants for admission. 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 only as funds become available during the spring.

Financial Aid Process

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. To begin your financial aid application for the 2015-2016 enrollment year, follow the steps below.
