Tuition & Financial Aid

Since it’s beginning in 1929, St. Andrew’s has been a boarding school affordable to all students, qualified for admission, regardless of their financial means.   

A. Felix DuPont, our founder, designed St. Andrew’s to be a school “of the highest academic caliber, with the finest faculty and facilities, accessible to bright students of great character, regardless of their means” and left the school with an endowment to meet need-blind admission. Today, we seek the greatest diversity of talented students, who are “bright and of great character” and we continue to fully meet each student’s demonstrated financial need.

To understand what this means for your family, take a look at the financial aid grants and net tuitions for this current year’s students. Perhaps this will help you determine if your family might qualify for a full or partial tuition grant.

In addition to income, a family’s assets and liabilities, the number of children in tuition charging schools and colleges, and other expenses impacting a families ability to pay full tuition are considered as we determine the net tuition charged for each qualifying student. In addition to tuition, qualifying students may receive additional stipends to cover the costs of health insurance, academic books, or travel expenses.
