Need-based Financial Aid
Saint Mary’s School is dedicated to providing need-based financial assistance to deserving families.
These grants are given to students with demonstrated need who would not otherwise have been able to afford Saint Mary’s School.
All need-based financial aid awards are reviewed annually. Applicants and returning students who are interested in need-based financial aid must apply each year with current financial information by the published deadlines.
Unless there is a significant change in a family’s financial situation, returning students who meet the financial aid application deadlines can expect the level of aid to be consistent from year to year. If a boarding student becomes a day student or vice versa, the financial aid will adjust accordingly.
Four Step Financial Aid Application Process
The need-based financial aid application process can be divided into four main parts: Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS), 1040 and supporting schedules, W-2 forms, and Form 4506-T.**
This checklist details the need-based financial aid application process. New families who meet the application deadlines receive priority in the financial aid process.
