Financial Assistance Opportunities
1) Need-Based Assistance (provided by St. Andrew’s Episcopal School)
St. Andrew’s Episcopal School believes that a family’s financial situation should not prevent a student from attending the School. St. Andrew’s operates a need-blind admissions and financial aid policy. Therefore, a family’s application for financial aid will have no bearing on a student’s application for admission.
The following procedures apply to families currently receiving financial aid as well as to those (including admissions applicants) applying for the first time. Families interested in applying for financial aid must submit a financial aid application form, available here, to the St. Andrew’s Episcopal School Financial Aid Office by February 1, signifying they would like to be considered for financial aid.
We partner with School and Student Services (SSS) in our financial aid process. The entire application process is processed on-line and is kept confidential. SSS provides a Family Resource Center to assist families in learning more about applying for financial aid. To begin your financial aid application, follow the instructions on how to apply for financial aid at the following link: APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID. To complete the Parent Financial Statement (PFS) click on the following link: SSS Family Portal
All parents–custodial and non-custodial, natural and stepparent–must submit these forms by the appropriate deadlines to receive financial aid. In considering applications for financial assistance for separated or divorced parents, the School considers the assets of both parents before making any award, and will not be bound by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed responsibility for educational expenses.
Any student to whom financial aid is awarded can expect that aid to continue as long as he remains in good academic and disciplinary standing at St. Andrew’s and provided his family continues to demonstrate need and is not in financial arrears. Application for assistance must be submitted annually.
2) Need-Based Assistance (provided by independent outside sources)
Currently there are two outside sources St. Andrew’s Episcopal School accepts – Ace Scholarships and Arete Scholarships. These two programs are available to families who have financial need based on the programs’ income limitations. Families apply directly to Ace and Arete for financial aid and list St. Andrew’s Episcopal School as their school choice. For more information on the Ace and Arete Scholarship Programs please visit their websites at the following links:
Ace Scholarships: www.acescholarships.org/
Arete Scholarships: www.aretescholars.org/
3) Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana’s Gaudet Scholarship Program (Need-Based Assistance for African American families)
The purpose of the Gaudet Scholarship Program is to advance the education of black African American students by providing need-based partial scholarships for attending primary and secondary schools that offer rigorous curricula in preparation for entry to and completion of college. Any interested African American parents and/or prospective parents are encouraged to apply by contacting the Admissions Office at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.
Please contact Lisa Witter, Director of Advancement, Enrollment & Financial Aid at (504) 866-6553 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions concerning financial aid or other scholarships listed above.
St. Andrew’s Episcopal School does not discriminate against any person in admission, employment, or otherwise because of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or age in violation of existing state or federal law or regulations.
