Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid

Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid

At St. Anne’s School, we understand the sacrifice many parents make in order to provide the best education for their child. Stemming from our Episcopalian tradition, we value respect, honesty, and kindness. These core values are expressed in conversations with our prospective families when discussing how to make an education at St. Anne’s School possible.

Our school is progressive and intentionally socio-economically diverse. We live our mission by making our exceptional program accessible to families from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. We offer affordable solutions in the form of need-based financial aid, merit- and need-based scholarships for incoming Sixth and Seventh Grade students, payment plans that can help break down tuition into more manageable amounts, and flexible tuition to help cover the overall cost.

If you feel like St. Anne’s School is the right fit for your child but are trying to figure out how to make it work financially, we encourage you to start a confidential conversation with Suzannah Hopkins, our Director of Enrollment Management and Financial Aid. This important step could bring your child closer to an extraordinary educational journey that will guide and inspire them to be one of the purposeful leaders of tomorrow.

2019-2020 Financial Aid

Every student who applies for admission to St. Anne’s School of Annapolis is also eligible to apply for our need-based financial aid. Need-based financial aid makes up the difference between the cost of tuition and a family’s expected contribution. There are times when more families qualify for financial aid than we are able to fund and, as a result, there may be some families who qualify for aid to whom we are unable to make an award.

The steps to apply for financial aid can be found below. Before you read on, keep in mind the following important deadlines:

  • December 15 (for returning families)
  • January 15 (for prospective families)
  • April 15 (for all families)

If you have any questions about the financial aid process, please contact Suzannah Hopkins, Director of Enrollment Management and Financial Aid at 410.263.8650, ext. 218.

Your online application will not be submitted until you review and complete the payment details.

Step 2: Submit your 2017 W2, 2017 Federal Tax Return and all supporting worksheets and addendums - Due December 15, 2018. All documents should be submitted directly to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by December 15, 2018.

If you are applying for financial aid after April 15, please submit this information at the time of your admissions application. Please note: If you estimated your income when completing the PFS, and there is a discrepancy between this estimate and the actual data on your income tax return, the Financial Aid Committee may make an adjustment to any financial aid award previously granted for the 2019-2020 academic year.
