Your interest in the St. David's School admission process indicates your commitment to providing the best possible education for your child. We recognize and know that the decision to attend an independent school does not come lightly. We realize that education is an investment – it is an investment in your child’s future, and it is a financial investment that requires a considerable commitment.
Affording St. David's
We believe that a St. David’s education should be accessible to students of all backgrounds, regardless of a family's financial means. For that reason, we are committed to making tuition affordable through the St. David’s School Tuition Assistance program. This program is designed to enroll qualified students who could not otherwise afford to attend, thus maximizing the overall strength of the student body.
We are so grateful to St. David's for the support they have provided. It allows us to afford the education we desire for our children. ST. David's Parent
