For Parents: Tuition & Financial Aid

Dear Families,

We are here to have honest, meaningful conversations about financial aid; it is a fundamental way in which we support the mission of our School and we are dedicated to making this process as transparent and as equitable as possible. We also work with families to help them plan for the fact that our tuition, like the tuition at other independent schools, will increase throughout a student’s time with us.

We are happy to answer your questions, and we invite a dialogue to ensure that we understand your situation accurately and completely. At Saint Ann’s, a financial aid application is a conversation. If in doubt about your family’s ability to sustain the cost of tuition or if you simply fear that you will not meet the criteria for need, we nevertheless encourage you to complete an application and begin the conversation with us.

We realize that this process can be daunting for many reasons. Many families are overwhelmed by the process, embarrassed to ask for help, or concerned about confidentiality of sensitive financial information. We understand this and invite you to reach out to our office at any point in the process for assistance. Please also know that we are always willing to speak with you. You may send a confidential email to Erika Cruz at or speak with her directly at 718-522-1660, extension 216.

In partnership,
Bianca Roberson
Chief Financial Officer
