Yes. St. Paul's School is fortunate to have the support of our endowment, loyal alumni, and other constituents to defray the actual cost of educating a student at SPS. For the 2021-22 school year, SPS offered $12 million in financial aid to 211 students. We hope you will contact Tim Caryl-Klika, Senior Associate Dean of Admission/Director of Financial Aid if you have any questions. He can be reached at 603-229-5639, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Paul’s provides need-based financial aid to all admitted students who demonstrate need, but the admission process is not 100 percent need-blind. In limited cases a family’s need for financial aid may influence an admission decision.
Need-based financial aid takes into account each family’s income, assets, and reasonable expenses. After determining a manageable family contribution, St. Paul’s School endeavors to meet the family’s need with grants.
Possibly. Financial need and awards are recalculated every year using up-to-date information. If there is little change in a family's circumstances, one can expect that future grants will be awarded at similar levels.
If a family did not apply for or did not qualify for financial aid upon admission to the School, we will consider awarding financial aid only if the family is experiencing a significant change in circumstances. Typical changes would be an employment change, a large decrease in income, or an increase in the number of children attending tuition-charging institutions.
There are many factors that affect award decisions, including a family's income, assets, and number of children in tuition-charging schools. To get a better idea of financial aid eligibility, please visit our Financial Aid Estimator.
St. Paul's School will consider the income and assets of both biological parents in determining an award. If either parent has remarried, we also will consider the income and assets of stepparents, bearing in mind responsibilities that stepparents may have for their own biological children.
The School offers a very limited amount of financial aid to international students. International applicants should complete the same Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) that domestic applicants complete by converting their income to U.S. dollars. They should also submit any relevant tax or asset information as necessary. Please contact Tim Caryl-Klika, Senior Associate Dean of Admission/Director of Financial Aid, at 603-229-5639 or by email at email@example.com with any questions.
