An Episcopal Day School | Preschool–Grade 5

Affording Grace

In the Episcopal tradition, grace is a gift that is freely given. Though we cannot offer financial support to all families, we commit a significant portion of our budget to a robust financial support program in order to make a Grace education accessible to more students and to support our mission of socioeconomic diversity.

Grace has one of the largest financial support budgets for a school of our size. Over 60% of our families receive a financial aid award ranging from 10-75% of tuition.

How to Apply

Grace uses TADS to evaluate applications for financial support. After a family uploads information about their financial circumstances and provides supporting documentation, TADS calculates an estimated amount that the family can contribute to educational expenses. TADS calculations guide the committee in its award decisions.

Financial Aid Due Dates and Decision Notifications

Applications for new families are due by Friday, February 2, 2018. Decisions will be communicated to families at the same time as admission decisions on Friday, March 2, 2018. Although admission and financial support decisions are made separately, we let families know about both decisions simultaneously so that they can make informed choices.

Returning families already receiving financial support must reapply through the TADS system by Monday, January 8, 2018. Decisions for the coming school year will be communicated to returning families in early February.
