Tuition & Financial Aid

We are delighted that you may be considering St. Patrick's as a school for your child. While the 2024-2025 admission deadline has passed, late applications will be considered if spaces remain for individual grade levels. Please contact the admission office by email if you are interested in submitting a late request. We look forward to getting to know your family!

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 private Day School in Washington DC, offering a wide range of grants each year. The Day School assists families with moderate to significant need.

St. Patrick’s provides only need-based financial aid to qualified students. There are no merit awards. To achieve our goal of a socioeconomically diverse learning community, the Board of Trustees designates funds for the Financial Aid Program each year. In 2023-2024, the school is providing approximately $2.8 million in grants to one out of four St. Patrick's students.

Annual tuition at St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School ranges from $35,800 for Nursery to $44,420 for Grades 6-8. Independent school education - particularly at a school with St. Patrick's configuration and quality of program - is an investment in your child's most formative years.

To see specific tuition by grade, see our 2024-2025 Tuition Schedule below.

Applying for Financial Aid

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.
