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 $21,930 for Nursery School (5 mornings) to $43,050 for Grades 4-8. 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.

Parent 8

She developed great relationships with her teachers and we were really impressed with how much she learned - particularly in growing her vocabulary, Spanish, reading, and math. The hands-on science curriculum is also impressive and seems to have sparked an interest in medical research and genetics. Other bright spots were chamber singers, the musicals, the amazing art program, and chapel council. There is definitely a focus on experiential learning which is really great for that age group.  

Parent 10

St. Patrick’s stretched our son’s curiosity, helped build his confidence, and challenged him academically. Thank you, St. Patrick's!

Parent 9

The strength of a St. Patrick’s Nursery - Grade 8 education is much bigger than high school placement statistics and test scores. The very strong foundation that the overall experience provides for our teenagers as they are launched into high school that really sets the St. Patrick’s education apart from others. They graduate as confident, kind, brave students ready to take on all of the challenges academic, social, and other—that they will face in high school. The opportunity to make a change and experience and conquer those challenges has been an instrumental part of our daughters’ education and we are grateful for that process. We owe a great deal of thanks to the tremendous faculty and staff at St. Patrick’s who have taken such good care of our whole family.

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.
