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.
