As a school, we are committed to providing our students with the highest quality education at the lowest possible cost. We strive to make Saint John’s affordable by maintaining low base tuition and providing support to help supplement the cost of tuition. 

Through the generosity of Saint John's alumni, parents, and friends, a financial aid program has been established to assist families of moderate and low income.

Applications for the 2021-2022 school year are now available in Smart Aid

If you have any questions or issues regarding your application we encourage you to reach out to Smart Aid's Customer Support at support@smartaidforparents.com or (800) 360-8027. Please Note: Once your application is submitted, you will need to contact Smart Aid's Customer Support to make revisions to your application.

Should you perceive that due to your family's financial situation you would be unable to afford a Saint John's education, we encourage you to apply for financial aid. We have been successful in meeting the needs of those families seeking assistance, and do not want finances to serve as a deterrent to your son's ability to obtain a Saint John's education. Awards are based solely on a family's assessed financial need in conjunction with the annual funds available through the Financial Aid Program at Saint John’s High School.

Please note that applications are required annually and are not automatically renewed, as a family’s situation can change from one year to the next. Divorced or separated parents applying for financial aid should refer to the Documents & Downloads section below for additional information/specific instructions.

List of 4 items.

  • Need-Based Financial Aid

    Need-based financial aid is available to students entering grades 7-12 and is awarded based on financial information submitted through the financial aid process. 

    Saint John's High School utilizes Smart Aid for all financial aid applications.
    Financial aid applications for the 2021-2022 school year will be available in Smart Aid beginning November 1, 2020. Please note the financial aid application is separate from the application for admission. 
  • Merit Scholarships

    Every applicant entering grade 9 at Saint John's is eligible for consideration for a Headmaster's Scholarship. All students are considered based on admission test results, academic records, and a strong recommendation from their teacher/counselor/school administrator. 

    Headmaster's Scholarships are renewed annually, assuming the recipient remains in good standing.
  • Tuition Payment Plans

    If a financial aid award is granted, the Business Office will adjust the payment plan upon notification from the Financial Aid Committee that the application is complete (including receipt of ALL tax documents requested/required.)

    Families have the choice of three payment plan options. Adjustments will be made to the tuition account based on the payment plan choice, as detailed below:

    Plan A: One payment to be made in June prior to start of academic year. The full amount of financial aid award is deducted from the June payment.

    Plan B: Three payments to be made in June, November and March. One third of the financial aid award is deducted from each of the three payments.

    Plan C: Ten payments to be made each month from June to March. One-tenth of the financial aid award is deducted from each of the ten monthly payments.

    Please note that the first payment, made in June, for Plan A & B will include a $50 payment plan fee and Plan C will include a $100 payment plan fee.
