At San Domenico, we believe that economic, cultural, and social diversity enhances the educational experience of our entire community. As such, we are committed to making our independent school education accessible to students from a wide variety of backgrounds, and our financial aid program supports this commitment to attract and enroll the strongest, most diverse student body possible. Ultimately, this leads to greater success for our entire School community including parents, students, teachers, staff, and the community at large.
We recognize the considerable cost of an independent school education and no student should be deterred for financial reasons from applying to San Domenico. We award grants to accepted students each year based upon their family's demonstrated need and the School's available funds. While the demand for assistance exceeds our available financial aid resources, San Domenico is committed to assisting as many families who require financial aid as possible. Approximately 30% of our families, K-12 receive a financial aid award.
Our financial aid budget is intended to supplement family resources, and awards are made not only to families whose ability to pay school costs is limited, but also to those of somewhat more substantial means who may need only a minor subsidy to meet tuition. If you believe that financial assistance is necessary, we encourage you to apply for financial aid. Such assistance is based on the assumptions that the primary obligation for financing a student's education lies with the family and that the family is willing to make significant adjustments in the use of its discretionary resources in order to meet educational costs.To provide financial assistance in an equitable manner, families seeking aid must complete the School and Student Services (SSS) Application through the National Association of Independent Schools.
