Frequently Asked Questions
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 a 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 through 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. Visit SJEC Grants & Scholarships for more information. 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.
Please be assured that the status of applications for admission and financial assistance are handled confidentially.
