Financial Aid:Based upon the belief that a diverse student body adds important breadth to the educational experience of all its students, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School maintains a substantial commitment to providing financial aid. Any applicant who has been accepted to St. Andrew’s may apply for financial aid based on family need. To be eligible to receive financial assistance, families are required to complete a confidential financial statement, which is sent directly to School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) in Pittsburgh, PA.

Within the limits of available funds, St. Andrew’s provides financial aid grants consistent with the SSS recommendation. Financial aid information and forms are available through theBusiness Office.
