Affording a Parish Education
In keeping with our mission to foster an inclusive Episcopal community, Parish seeks to attract and maintain a diverse and talented student body, including students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds. As such, the School is committed to providing financial assistance to families that demonstrate financial need.
Parish’s financial assistance philosophy is based on the principle that each family bears the primary responsibility for financing a student’s educational costs. Every family contributes to their student’s tuition to the extent they are financially able. The goal of the financial assistance program is to make a Parish education both accessible and affordable. No family should assume that a Parish education is out of reach solely for financial reasons.
For the 2019-2020 school year, Parish awarded more than $3.2 million in tuition assistance and supplemental support to more than 160 students. Tuition assistance grants range from $1500 to more than $28,000.
Parish follows set procedures to ensure a fair, consistent and equitable assessment of each family’s ability to pay educational expenses. The entire process is completely confidential. The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or any other category protected by law in the administration of the financial assistance program.
