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 $2.3 million in aid to approximately 14% 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). 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 9, 2018, with final awards confirmed once 2017 income taxes are received in April 2018.*The 2018-2019 SSS Financial Aid Forms will be available online beginning October 2, 2017Financial Aid Application Checklist:
