Affording St. David's

We strive to make a St. David’s education accessible to students of all backgrounds, regardless of a family's financial means. With this in mind, we are pleased to offer a combination of programs, including need-based tuition assistance, merit scholarships, and education loans as well as participating in the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship, all with the goal of making tuition affordable for all families.

Families may choose to apply for one or all programs. Families are not required to complete an application for tuition assistance in order for their child to be eligible for a merit scholarship. In addition, being awarded a merit-scholarship does not prevent a family from applying and qualifying for tuition assistance as well.

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

Tuition Assistance Programs

Merit Scholarships

We believe the St. David's School experience combines the right mix of challenging academics, Christian faith formation, character and leadership development opportunities, competitive athletics and a second-to-none fine arts program that come together to give our students every opportunity to try new things and expand their imagination for the next leg of their journey. Through the support of generous donors, St. David's School is able to offer five merit scholarships to prospective and current rising ninth and tenth grade students who bolster the composition of the student body with earnest, mission-aligned servant leaders who embrace each opportunity St. David's offers to them.

Award amounts vary, ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 awarded annually per scholarship recipient, and are typically granted for each year during the student's time at St. David's, provided the student continues to meet the qualifications.

Students interested in applying for a merit scholarship should complete an application and submit it either in person or by email to Virginia Matthews, Assistant Head of School for Enrollment Management.


St. David's School is a member of the North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association (NCISAA), and as a member acts in accordance to the association's policies as it relates to admissions for student athletes. Therefore, St. David's School does not actively recruit athletes to play at the school and does not provide athletic scholarships for student-athletes.
