Financial Aid FAQs

Is financial aid available at St. Paul's School?

Yes. St. Paul’s School is fortunate to have the support of our endowment, loyal alumni and parents, and other constituents, to defray the actual cost of educating a student at SPS. For the 2023-24 school year, SPS offered over $10 million in financial aid to more than 200 students. We hope you will contact Tim Klika, senior associate dean of admissions and director of financial aid if you have any questions. He can be reached at 603-229-5639, or by email at tklika@sps.edu.

How are financial aid awards determined?

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.

Will our financial aid change from year to year?

Possibly. Financial need and awards are recalculated every year using up-to-date information. If there is little change in your family’s circumstances, you can expect that future grants will be awarded at similar levels.

Can a family that does not receive financial aid upon admittance receive financial aid in future years?

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.

Who qualifies for financial aid?

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 use the above Financial Aid Estimator.

What about cases of divorce, separation and single parents?

St. Paul’s School will consider the income and assets of both biological parents or legal guardians 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.

Does St. Paul's School award financial aid to international students?

International students seeking financial aid should complete the Clarity financial aid application converting their income to U.S. dollars. The School offers a limited amount of financial aid to international students, and the aid is limited in both the number of students receiving aid and the amount of an award. Please contact Tim Klika, senior associate dean of admission and director of financial aid, at 603-229-5639 or by email at tklika@sps.edu with any questions.

What are the deadlines for applying for financial aid?

Jan. 15: Complete the Clarity financial aid application

March 10: Financial aid decisions are available to families of newly admitted students.
