Tuition and Tuition Assistance


We understand that the cost of independent school tuition is a significant, long-term investment. St. Anne’s is committed to making it affordable for families regardless of their economic circumstances. The tuition assistance program reflects our dedication to a community enriched by socioeconomic diversity with over 20% of our families participating in our program. Every family must submit an application for tuition assistance each year they are enrolled, following procedures and deadlines, and demonstrating continued eligibility to receive assistance.

St. Anne’s allocates over $1.4 million in funds to offset tuition costs and to provide special services to eligible children when necessary. Awards are based solely on a family’s ability to pay, and the school uses the information submitted in the application. Applications for tuition assistance are confidential, and they are considered on a case-by-case basis. Because of the school’s commitment to maintaining a broad socioeconomic population, families of varied financial situations may be considered for assistance.


How to Apply

The school partners with School and Student Services (SSS) in our financial aid process. SSS processes financial aid applications and makes recommendations to the school. The school’s Financial Aid Committee examines those recommendations and then makes decisions regarding families’ eligibility for assistance. The Committee balances two factors in considering requests for assistance: each family’s financial need and the school’s ability to grant assistance while remaining within its budget.

In an effort to allocate funds in a timely manner, the Financial Aid Committee has established certain application deadlines and requirements. Applicants for tuition assistance should observe the following guidelines carefully:
1. Go to the SSS website at If you are using the website for the first time, you will need to create an account.
2.     Begin a PFS for Academic Year 2024-2025  You can log out of the PFS Online at any time and then return later to complete your PFS. In completing your application, you will need to use the St. Anne’s school code: 6311Note that you must complete and submit the PFS by February 1, 2024.
3.     Pay for and submit your PFS. Once you have paid the non-refundable fee and submitted your PFS, the school will instantly receive your information. Note that SSS or the school may waive the fees for qualifying families. 
4.     Upload the following documents to your SSS account by February 1, 2024: 
a) a copy of your most recent tax return
b) a copy of your most recent W-2 form(s)
Families applying to St. Anne’s for the first time will learn of their assistance status at the time that they are notified of their students’ enrollment status. Current St. Anne’s families will learn of their status by early March.
