Financial Aid

Financial Aid

What is financial aid?
Financial aid is a program designed to support our students who are unable to meet the full cost of tuition. Financial aid grants are based on a family’s designated financial need. Tuition Aid Data Service (TADS) has been selected to service your financial needs.

Who can apply for financial aid?
Any current student or a student applying for admission to Saint Louis School may apply for financial aid. For new admission applicants, financial aid applications will be reviewed only when an admission application has been submitted. Each family must re-apply for financial aid yearly.

When do I apply for financial aid?
For priority consideration, applicants should apply before February 28, 2017.  Applications submitted after the deadline will still be considered. New applicants are encouraged to submit the financial aid form along with their application packet as soon as possible. Applications can be completed online at the TADS website at or can be ordered by calling 1-800-884-8237 for a minimal fee.

When do I know if I qualify?
For new applicants to Saint Louis School, a letter will be sent notifying each applicant of the award amount following acceptance. For returning students, award letters will be mailed by the end of April. Letters will also be sent to those applicants who do not qualify. If parents feel the amount of the award is insufficient, they may appeal for re-evaluation in writing to the Business Office.

Please note: Admission decisions and financial aid awards are kept separate. Applying for financial aid in no way hinders an applicant’s consideration for admission to Saint Louis School. All financial aid information is strictly confidential.

Who decides on the awards and how are they distributed?
The financial aid committee, comprised of various members of the school community, reviews each financial aid application on:

  • The basis of the family’s demonstrated need relative to other applicants
  • The student’s academic performance and behavior
  • The information provided on the TADS financial aid form
  • Availability of funds.

For more information contact the Business Office at (808) 739-4717 (returning students) or Admissions Office at (808)739-4832 (new students)
