Affording St. George

St. George Episcopal School is committed to developing cultural competence, creating awareness, and building a diverse and inclusive community.

Everyone is valued for their unique qualities by enhancing the entire student body through a broad social and economic mix.

Families who feel they cannot afford the full tuition cost are encouraged to apply for financial aid. Financial aid is not a loan but a gift. Each year, we gift aid to an average of 25% of our student population. When determining a family’s eligibility for aid, St. George Episcopal School utilizes the third party tool called Clarity to gather and evaluate each financial aid application. All families who are interested in receiving financial aid must reapply each school year, even after they are admitted to St. George.

The processes of determining admission and financial aid are separate, and evaluations are completed via two different committees. Families should complete both application processes at the same time. The Financial Aid Committee maintains strict confidentiality regarding financial aid decisions. The School trusts that the family will keep the same discretion regarding awards and decisions.
