Affordability at St. Augustine Prep
Keep them in Blazers | A life & tuition assistance program at St. Augustine Prep
St. Augustine Preparatory School is committed to providing a quality, personalized, values-based education for those qualified students who desire it. Ever mindful of the serious question surrounding affordability, St. Augustine Prep is proud of the Keep Them In Blazers program. Unlike other private institutions where financial aid is funded by large endowments, St. Augustine Prep is blessed with annual support and philanthropy from benefactors, alumni, family, and friends, all committed to Keep Them In Blazers – the school’s life and tuition assistance program.
In order to be considered for aid, families must complete the online TADS Application and meet specific deadlines. The amount of assistance granted is determined by the Tuition Assistance Committee and is based on several factors including the total funds available and the number of total applicants.
St. Augustine Preparatory School seeks social, economic, cultural, and ethnic diversity in its student body. For this reason, young men who possess unique talents and who have demonstrated need may be considered for a tuition assistance grant. The repayment of a grant is not required, but the institution’s expectations are that the student will have a stellar discipline record, have an excellent academic record, and have the recommendation of the faculty and staff in order to maintain the grant. Tuition assistance will not be awarded to students with outstanding tuition payments until agreements have been made with the St. Augustine Prep’s Business Office. Families of enrolled students must reapply for tuition assistance each year.
Please feel free to contact the Admissions Office with any questions or concerns at 856-697-2600 ext. 149.

Head of School Scholarships (All Grades 8-12)
In the wake of COVID-19, many elite colleges, universities, and Independent Secondary Schools all across the nation are adapting their admissions testing policies. St. Augustine Prep is no different and will be holding an optional evening scholarship exam two weeks following the Open House on Thursday, November 19, 2020, at 7 pm.
This exam, known as the “Head of School Scholarship Exam” is not required for admittance to the Prep, but instead serves as a baseline for consideration for potential scholarship money. This potential money is awarded to those outstanding students who score in the top percentile on this exam. The exam is recreated yearly by members of the Prep English and Mathematics Departments and students participating are allotted forty-five minutes to complete it. All current 8th Grade students applying to the Prep are welcome to take part in the evening. Light refreshments will be provided.
Head of School Scholarships for Grades 9-12 are valued between $8,000 and $40,000 ($2,000 to $10,000 annually) and are awarded at the discretion of St. Augustine Preparatory School.
For our new eighth grade, 6 Head of School Scholarships valued at $500 will be awarded at the discretion of St. Augustine Preparatory School.
