Saint John’s Preparatory School aspires to admit students who demonstrate academic promise, leadership, extra-curricular and community service interests, regardless of their families’ socio-economic, ethnic or religious backgrounds.

Saint John’s Prep School does not have a one size fits all tuition. Rather, Saint John’s Prep offers a range of tuition levels to match a variety of unique financial situations. We call it variable tuition. Our goal is to continue to make a Saint John’s Prep education accessible for families.

To put it simply, variable tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program. Our variable tuition program allows families to apply for reduced tuition (grades 6-12), making an education at Saint John’s Prep affordable for qualified students and their families.

Over our school’s 160-year history, generous donors have financially supported the students of Saint John’s Prep School by establishing endowed scholarship funds. Their generosity and commitment to education allows us to work with all families in an effort to make a Prep School education accessible. Historically, we have identified this endowment support as Financial Aid, helping offset the stated rate of tuition. More recently, we have worked with Smart Tuition focusing our attention on each individual family’s ability to contribute to their child’s education based on their family’s unique financial circumstances.

A Saint John’s Preparatory School education is an investment in your child and their future. We provide an all-inclusive, quality education that includes experiential learning and extracurricular activities at no additional cost to our families.

 

We believe in the value of a Saint John’s Prep education, and we are committed to supporting families to make it possible through Variable Tuition, our need-based tuition assistance program.

Each year, students are invited to apply for both merit and need-based scholarships. These scholarship programs, which are supported by our endowment, donors, friends, and alumni help to make the Prep Experience available to qualified students.
