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.

Financial aid applications for the 2022-2023 school year are available now in Blackbaud Financial Aid Management (formerly Smart Aid).

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. If you have any questions or issues regarding your application, we encourage you to reach out to Blackbaud Financial Aid Management's Customer Support at financialaidsupport@blackbaud.school  or 1 (800) 360-8027. Once your application is submitted, you will need to contact Customer Support in order to make revisions to your application.

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.
