Affording St. John's

You Can Afford St. John’s Parish Day School

St. John's welcomes all families! We understand that sending a child to the right private school is a significant financial investment for a family.  For this reason, the School has established a financial aid program, to support families who will benefit from financial assistance.  Subject to budget considerations in any given year, St. John's Parish Day School will attempt to meet the demonstrated need of all students admitted.  We offer the following financing options.


Option One:  Apply for Financial Aid


Financial aid awards are a grant from the School for those entering Kindergarten thru fifth grade. 


How Do I Apply?

 

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for St. John's Parish Day School for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year beginning December 1, 2018.  Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by Jan. 15, 2019.  Applicants can apply online by clicking the FACTS link at https://online.factsmgt.com/aid.   Once an online application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the application process:

 

All supporting documentation can be uploaded in pdf format online.

If you have questions or concerns about the application process, you may speak with a FACTS Customer Care Representative at 866-441-4637.

 


Do I apply every year for financial assistance?


Yes, applying every year is required. 


If we did not apply for financial aid during the admission process, can we still apply after we are admitted? 


We strongly encourage all families who will require financial assistance to meet our stated deadlines. We cannot guarantee that funds will be available at the end of the admission season. 

If my child is admitted without any financial aid, might there be aid available the following year? 


There is little chance that a student enrolling without financial aid would be awarded aid in subsequent years without significant changes in the family's financial circumstances.  

 

Can I use my 529 Plan to pay for private school?

 

Yes, the new federal tax law allows families to withdraw up to $10,000  a year from a beneficiary's 529 account to pay tuition for Kindergarten thru 5th grade without federal taxes or penalties.


Does St. John's offer other tuition grants or scholarships?


Yes.  There are scholarship opportunities for members in good standing of St. John’s Episcopal Church.  Begin the process of applying by submitting your information on FACTS, https://online.factsmgt.com/aid.

If we receive financial assistance, do we have to pay the school back?


No. Awards are not loans and are provided to families on a need-based basis in order to ensure that the St. John's experience is accessible to highly qualified students regardless of their ability to afford our tuition. 

Option Two:  Various Tuition Payment Plans

St. John's families can pay their tuition in full by June 1. We realize this is not always financially feasible. For this reason, we offer a low-interest payment plan. Options for payment include:

  1. Prepayment of the full year's tuition - 100% by June 1.
  2. Three installments - due June 1st, September 1st and December 1st (a one-time service fee of $125 for this plan).
  3. Ten installments - due the 1st of each month starting in June 2018 and ending in March 2019 (a one-time service fee of $150 for this plan).

     

Tuition Insurance

 

All parents who return a signed enrollment contract must honor the contract obligation.  Parents who are not using Options 1 above are required to buy tuition insurance.  St. John’s has an agreement with the underwriter Dewar, Inc., and the annual premium is relatively inexpensive ranging from $60 - $200 depending on the cost of tuition.  Tuition insurance protects both the School and a family in case the family cannot finish paying for tuition, must move away, or other exigencies and emergencies arise.  Users of Options 1 may of course buy tuition insurance if they wish.

 

Confidentiality

Please be assured that the status of applications for admission and financial assistance are handled  confidentially.
