You may request a financial aid application from the Enrollment Office or fill it out online here. Your child will need to visit St. Mark’s, receive the admissions evaluation, and complete enrollment before you are notified of financial aid. The Parents Financial Statement of the financial aid applications must be completed and mailed to the School and Student Service (SSS) for Financial Aid by February 1. The applicant must forward copies of all income tax forms and schedules that were filed with the Internal Revenue Service for the current tax year by March 1. All submissions are confidential and only reviewed by the School’s Financial Aid Committee for eligibility determination.
Financial need is determined by the School’s Financial Aid Committee, which uses the confidential Parents Financial Statement, income tax returns, and the School and Student Service for Financial Aid as a guide. School and Student Service collects information that is submitted by parents to assist our committee in determining need. Through all submitted materials, the committee then determines who receives aid and how much aid to grant.
