Financial Aid Priorities

Investing in a Talented Student Body

Saint Andrew’s School is made stronger by the presence of many gifted individuals who inhabit our classrooms and laboratories; our stages, playing fields, and recital halls. These students, who come from a broad range of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, help to create a community of scholars that reflects the world at large and enriches our daily lives.

Enhancing Need-Based Financial Aid

Over the past decade, we have increased the resources available for financial aid and taken steps to ensure that our financial aid programs are competitive and effective to attract the best and brightest students in Boca Raton, South Florida, and beyond. These steps have included: implementing need-blind admission; (thanks transformative gifts such as the Gary Peters Family Foundation Scholarship) to provide significant financial aid reducing financial burdens for lower- and middle-income students and their families. This is an extraordinary expansion of financial aid. But in order to maintain this expansion, we need the support of the entire community.

Investing in Talent

Your gifts toward financial aid are more than a means to an education: they are an investment in talent, which ultimately broadens everyone’s education at SAS. To help preserve this strong community, please consider:
  • endowing a scholarship
  • setting up a planned gift, or
  • contributing to the Saint Andrew’s Annual Fund and designating it to “Financial Aid.”
