Tuition & Financial Aid: Current Families

Additional information and instructions for current families applying for financial aid can be found on the Parent Portal.

General Information for Current Families

Families interested in receiving financial aid must apply at the time they apply for admission to Saint Ann’s. Except in the case of a significant change in the family’s financial circumstances, if a family did not apply for financial aid when they first enrolled at the School, they must wait three years before being eligible to apply. Families already enrolled in the School who are applying for aid for the first time need to inform the Finance Office of their intention to apply for aid as soon as possible, no later than October 1.

Families already receiving aid reapply annually. Financial aid applications are reviewed each fall, and financial aid is awarded based on an analysis of each family’s ability to pay tuition. Aid awards are conditional on receiving the completed application and all relevant documents.

All applications for aid are treated in the strictest confidence. Questions about the financial aid process from currently enrolled families should be directed to Erika Cruz at or 718-522-1660, extension 216.

Non-Tuition Financial Aid

Families receiving financial aid may be eligible to receive non-tuition aid to support a student’s ability to engage fully in the educational experience at Saint Ann’s. Examples of the type of non-tuition aid the school offers include aid for evaluations, therapies, overnight trip fees, music lessons, and test prep fees.  Non-tuition financial aid requests are evaluated throughout the school year, and awards are based on demonstrated need and availability of funding. 

The process to apply for non-tuition aid for support services such as therapies and evaluations can be found here.  The process to apply for non-tuition aid for activity and other fees can be found here.
