We want to help you attend SPS! St. Paul’s School awarded $11.8 million to 211 students in the 2018-19 academic year alone. We are committed to making St. Paul’s an affordable option for families.

To honor this commitment we will generally:
Consider a domestic household income of $125,000 per year or less as qualifying for full financial aid toward tuition.
Expect domestic families with an annual income of less than $250,000 to not pay more than 10% of their income toward tuition per year.
Meet full demonstrated financial need; there are no gaps between what we determine to be your need and our financial aid award.
Use only grants to meet financial need; there are no loans awarded as part of our package.
To the best of our ability, we make admission decisions regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
We strongly encourage all qualified applicants to consider St. Paul’s, regardless of whether they think they can afford the full cost of attending. We will work with you to ensure that what can seem like a confusing and difficult process is actually a simple step-by-step endeavor.

Feel free to contact Tim Caryl-Klika, Director of Enrollment Management and Financial Aid, at 603-229-5639 or at tcarylklika@sps.edu if you have any questions.

  • Applying for Financial Aid

    Students seeking financial aid must apply at the time of application for admission. A student who enrolls without a financial aid package can be eligible to apply for aid in future years only if they have experienced a significant change in circumstances. Financial aid is not available for families with pre-existing needs that were not disclosed at the time of initial admission.

    St. Paul’s will notify you of your admission and financial aid award at the same time. All of the required financial aid application materials must be submitted by the appropriate deadlines. We cannot guarantee that a qualified applicant will receive financial aid if the deadlines are not met.

    If there are any special circumstances not addressed in your application you would like us to consider, please send a letter addressed to Tim Caryl-Klika, Director of Enrollment Management and Financial Aid, with all details. For your convenience, you may send the letter via e-mail to tcarylklika@sps.edu.

For many families, a third-party educational loan may be necessary to meet the family contribution. Please see the National Association of Independent Schools website for information about lending institutions. Their representatives can help families project educational financing needs over a child’s high school and college careers.
