A St. Mark’s education is an investment that will pay dividends for life. By providing an extensive financial aid program as well as tuition financing options, St. Mark’s helps families find manageable ways to afford their son’s education. The cost of tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a Marksman. Twenty-five percent of the operating budget is supported by philanthropic sources, which ensures the excellence of the St. Mark’s experience.
Listed below are the tuition and fees for the 2023–2024 academic year. The amounts include lunches, textbooks and supplies.

Financial Aid

St. Mark’s admits qualified boys regardless of their financial circumstances. The School actively seeks students who represent varied socio-economic backgrounds. An extensive need-based financial aid program, which includes a significant middle-income fund, annually awards over $2.5 million in aid to approximately 13% of the student body.
Financial aid awards are based on need and require annual qualification. Awards are recommended by the St. Mark’s Financial Aid Committee using information provided by applicant families and qualification information from the School and Student Services for Financial Aid organization (SSS), a program of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).

The chart below illustrates the income range of financial aid applicants for the 2022-2023 school year, and subsequent award decisions. Using the first line as an example, 14 families with incomes ranging from $0-$70,000 applied for financial aid for the 2022-2023 school year. All 14 of those families received awards with an average award of $31,361 each. The average award covered 97% of the total tuition. Individual family award qualification and award amounts are significantly influenced by the number of children who attend tuition charging schools and by extenuating financial circumstances.

Total Income Range

Average Percentage of Tuition Awarded
14 14 $31,361 97.00%

The admission decision and the financial aid decision are made separately, and all financial aid awards are based exclusively on need. Provisional awards will be communicated with admission decisions on March 10, 2023, with final awards confirmed once 2022 income taxes are received in April 2023.
