Tuition Assistance

Applications for tuition assistance are due by April 30th, 2017 for the 2017-2018 school year.

Our annual school auction raises money for our tuition assistance fund which allows us to offer tuition assistance to full day students in both our Primary and Elementary programs. The tuition assistance committee reviews each request on a need-based, case-by-case basis. Currently 15-20% of our students receive tuition assistance.

The application can be found to the left or you can pick up a copy at the front desk. The application can either be emailed to Deidre DeMerritt at or you can mail a paper copy to the school (see address below).
