Financial Aid at St. Paul’s enables students of promise to enroll who would not otherwise have access to independent education because of financial constraints.  The aid extended makes St. Paul’s more approachable for some applicant families, thus fostering outreach and creating a more diverse school.  The outreach has beneficial influence upon everyone within the school and carries outward in the city of New Orleans.  The school is unable to offer full aid to any one student candidate or family.  By design of policy and tradition then, families are encouraged to carry the major portion of the financial requirements of independent education. Those who wish to apply for financial aid must realize this is done each year by the candidates and is not a roll-over, nor an automatic process or procedure.  All financial aid information is treated with the utmost confidentiality by the Head of School and Business Office.  The same consideration is expected from the Parents/Guardians.
