General Information for Current Families
Financial Aid is awarded on the basis of financial need, and is distributed as equitably as possible based on an analysis of each family’s income, assets, and other relevant financial criteria. We will take all relevant data into account when evaluating your family’s financial aid request. Annual financial aid applications for the following academic year are received and reviewed by the school each fall and aid awards are reviewed and approved by the Financial Aid Committee of the Board of Trustees. Families already receiving aid must reapply annually. Aid awards are conditional on receiving the completed application and all relevant documents.
All applications for aid are treated in the strictest confidence. Instructions and information for current families can be found on the Parent Portal. Questions about the financial aid process from currently enrolled families should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-522-1660, ext. 216.
Qualification to be Considered for Financial Aid
In order to be considered for financial aid, a student must either have been admitted to Saint Ann’s as an aid applicant or have attended Saint Ann’s for three years. Aid may also be available should a family’s financial circumstances change substantially during the first three years of a child’s attendance. Families already enrolled in the School but applying for aid for the first time must inform the Finance Office of their intention to apply for aid as soon as possible, no later than October 1.
Non-Tuition Financial Aid
Families receiving financial aid may be eligible to receive non-tuition aid to support a student’s participation in school activities that further their educational experience. Applications for tuition-based financial aid are evaluated on an annual basis but non-tuition financial aid requests are evaluated throughout the academic year.
Non-tuition aid is based on demonstrated need and availability of funding. Requests for non-tuition aid should be directed to the Finance Office at email@example.com. Note that any financial aid awarded for non-tuition purposes is likely considered taxable income to the family by the IRS. A tax accountant can determine the family’s tax obligation and reporting requirements.
