Affording an independent school education is possible for families of all income levels. Unfortunately, many families do not consider independent schools due to the high cost of tuition. Grace Episcopal Day School believes that the cost of an independent school education should not be a deterrent to prospective families.
As an Episcopal School, an integral part of our mission is to promote socioeconomic diversity among our student body. To achieve this, the school has a goal of increasing our scholarship fund to equal 10% of the total tuition revenue over the next 6 years. This will allow many of our families to bridge the gap between what they can contribute financially and the actual cost of attending.
Financial aid at GEDS is available to those families that qualify with students in intermediate classes through eighth grade. Applications for financial aid are made through the School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS). These forms are available on-line at www.nais.org.
The deadline for filing is February 10, 2013, for the 2013-2014 school year. Families currently receiving financial assistance must submit a new application each year.
Every award is individualized based upon the financial assessment of each candidate and is strictly confidential. It is important to note that GEDS may not be able to accommodate all financial assistance applicants in a given school year.
