St. Paul's understands that an independent school education is a major investment for families to consider, and we are committed to supporting students who need tuition assistance.
No student or family should hesitate to apply for admission because of their inability to pay the entire cost. St. Paul's is dedicated to making quality education accessible to all students, regardless of their financial circumstances.
For Current Families:
- Deadline to apply - December 31
- Assistance awards granted - February 1
For New Families:
- Deadline to apply - February 15
- Assistance awards granted - March 1
Even if the application deadline for the current year has passed, families are still encouraged to submit the assistance application. Our staff will work to process your request in time for the coming school year.
More than 25% of our families receive financial assistance every year. St. Paul's uses FACTS Management to gather information from families to determine award amounts.
Recent changes to federal law are expanding the 529 savings program, allowing Missouri and Kansas families to better utilize this important program for elementary and middle school education.
Taxpayers can now use Missouri MOST 529 assets and Kansas Learning Quest assets to pay for K-12 tuition up to $10,000 per year per students without state tax consequences. State tax treatment of the education withdrawals is determined by the state(s) where the taxpayer files state income tax. When considering this option, we recommend consulting a tax advisor.
