Current students and applicants accepted by the Enrollment Office may apply for financial aid by following the procedures below. Applicants must demonstrate financial need as reported by the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS). Financial aid awards are granted on an annual basis and governed by the Financial Aid Committee and are kept completely confidential. Financial aid is always contingent upon the availability of funds in any given year. Additional factors taken into account in the award decision process are family size, income, expenses, assets and liabilities, and spending priorities.

Our financial aid program is based solely on financial need, rather than academic performance. Applying for financial aid will in no way affect consideration of your child for admission at St. Mark's. Therefore, any family who has reviewed their financial situation and feels they need help paying tuition should apply for aid. 

Families interested in financial aid for the upcoming school year should apply as follows:

Application Period: October 2, 2017 - March 1, 2018

Step 1: Complete the Parents' Financial Statement Online Workbook at

Step 2: Submit the required documentation as outlined below.


Due March 1, 2018: 2017 Federal Income Tax Return (1040), including all schedules and W-2/1099 forms

Required Documents must be submitted to SSS via a secure online upload. The Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) Online Workbook (available upon login to SSS website) will take you step by step through this process. Timely submission of required documentation is the most important aspect of the process. Families applying for financial aid will be notified of their award by March 23, 2017.
