Affording All Saints'

What is Indexed Tuition?

All Saints’ Board of Trustees is committed to creating a school community that is truly inclusive, diverse, and accessible to a wide range of families. To help ensure that we fully embrace this pledge, All Saints’ Episcopal Day School has adopted an Indexed Tuition model.
 
The Indexed Tuition model sets each student’s tuition based on its family’s unique circumstances and financial resources. In adopting this approach each family pays tuition in an equitable manner commensurate with their available resources. While every family is expected to contribute to the cost of tuition, the School does not expect that all families are able to afford the top of the tuition range.

Indexed Tuition Guiding Principles:

  • All Saints’ admission decisions are need-blind. The application processes for admission and Indexed Tuition run concurrently but separately.
  • Indexed Tuition is available for pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students.
  • The School first offers Indexed Tuition to returning families who continue to qualify, then to current families not previously receiving Indexed Tuition, and lastly to new families joining the school community.
  • Indexed Tuition eligibility is reviewed annually on the basis of the family’s current financial status. 
  • To be considered for Indexed Tuition, each family must complete and submit a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) using the School and Student Service (SSS) platform by Community Brands, as well as supporting documentation, including income statements and tax returns.

  • If a child’s parents are separated or divorced, All Saints’ expects both parents to participate in the Indexed Tuition process. It is the responsibility of the separated or divorced parents to coordinate the submission of the Parents’ Financial Statement for each household.  If either parent has remarried, the School will also consider the income and assets of the stepparent, always keeping in mind the obligation of that stepparent to his or her own children.
