Financial Aid

How We Help

​St. Benedict's is dedicated to offering the best education for your student while keeping tuition affordable.  St. Benedict's Episcopal School has limited financial aid to award to families. This aid is awarded based on financial need. Each family who receives a financial aid award should expect to pay some tuition, as there are no full tuition awards. Financial Aid awards are a means of making St. Benedict's Episcopal School accessible to children who, regardless of race, sexual orientation, color, creed or national origin, though meeting the requirements for admission, are not able to meet part of the expenses without financial assistance.​

  • Financial aid is awarded once a year based on financial need. 

  • Families who receives a financial aid award should expect to pay some tuition, as there are no full tuition awards. 

  • Financial aid applications due dates and award notifications for the 2022 – 2023 school year are as follows:

  • ALL Grades Financial Aid Applications Due

    • Returning Families 2.1.22

    • New Families 3.18.22

  • ALL Grades Financial Aid Award Notifications Round 1

    • Returning Families 2.11.22

  • ALL Grades Financial Aid Award Notifications Round 2

    • Returning Families 4.2.22

    • New Families 4.2.22

Completing the financial aid process requires applicants to file their current year tax returns ahead of the financial aid application (before March 15) so that eligibility can be verified by the FACTS system. 

  • Once financial aid is verified FACTS will make aid recommendations which are reviewed and finalized by the finance committee based on the amount of aid available. 

  • Financial Aid awards are a means of making St. Benedict's Episcopal School accessible to children who, regardless of race, sexual orientation, color, creed or national origin, through meeting the requirements for admission, are not able to meet part of the expenses without financial assistance.

  • The application for financial aid should be submitted with the application for admission to the school.  

  • Families applying for financial aid must still go through the enrollment process, which includes making the full deposit by the following dates:

    • Returning Families

      • ​Preschool - Pre-Kindergarten 1.26.22

      • Kindergarten - 8th Grade 2.9.22 

    • New Families​

      • ​Preschool - Pre-Kindergarten 2.16.22

      • Kindergarten - 8th Grade 4.14.22

  • If financial aid is awarded, the financial aid award and paid deposit will be deducted from the total tuition balance and then applied to the payment plan selected. 

 

To begin the Financial Aid Application process

  • Log into FACTS, our online tuition billing system and financial aid portal.  

  • On the first page you will be asked to sign in or to create an account.  

  • If you are new to St. Benedict's, you need to create an account.  

  • Once your account is completed, FACTS will display instructions along with a video to help you through the process.

EverLaith Foundation is an Atlanta-based nonprofit private foundation, set up in memory of Shariq Laith Haider with the mission to preserve his enduring legacy of selfless love and compassion. Laith was an outstanding student and athlete attending St. Benedict’s Episcopal School in Smyrna, Georgia. In his short but bright 13 years, Laith deeply and positively affected his family and friends, and their lives will remain forever changed due to their mutual love and affection. His tragic loss in March 2020 brought our community together to aspire higher and love deeper. To fulfill Laith’s vision, his family and friends have set up a Foundation whose mission is to support the welfare of children and animals alike.
