Affording SASAt St. Andrew's-Sewanee School, we are committed to making our superb college preparatory program available to deserving students. Listed below are several options that families can use to help manage the cost of tuition. SAS annually awards more than $1,600,000 in financial aid. Application for financial aid has no bearing on admission to St. Andrew's-Sewanee School.
Tuition Payment Plans administered by FACTS allow parents to spread the cost of tuition over as many as 10 payments during the academic year and pay by automatic debit, credit card, mailed payments, mobile payments, or web payments. Payment plans are interest-free but require a small annual administrative fee. Signup is easy and online. FACTS provides 24/7 live-agent customer service and is integrated with FlyWire (PeerTransfer) to accept international payments. Parents and guardians may also view account status and make payments from any mobile device.
529 Plans are tax-advantaged savings plans designed to encourage saving for educational costs. These qualified tuition plans are sponsored by states, state agencies, or educational institutions and are authorized by Section 529 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Recent changes in the tax code allow these funds, previously restricted to post-secondary education, to now be used for private school tuition.
The Claiborne Scholars Program is an SAS-administered merit scholarship for incoming 9th and 10th grade boarding students who have demonstrated academic achievement and a willingness to serve the community. This program is available to all qualified students and is suitable for families who would not qualify for need-based financial aid. Students interested in applying to the Claiborne Scholars Program should make the Admissions staff aware of their interest.
As a member of the Episcopal community, we are pleased to offer The Episcopal Employees Grant. This program provides priority financial aid for qualified students who have a parent employed full-time by the Episcopal Church.
Need-based financial aid provides assistance to students who would otherwise be unable to attend St. Andrew's-Sewanee School. Financial Aid awards are based upon school resources and a family's need as determined by the Financial Aid Committee and on the evaluation received from the School & Student Services (SSS) Assessment. Recipients must reapply each year.
If you or your family is interested in receiving more information about any of these programs, please contact the Admission Office.
