Financial Assistance

Sterne School provides financial assistance to reduce educational costs so that students in need of our specialized program can benefit, regardless of financial circumstances. Our financial assistance is based on demonstrated need. While we are pleased to offer financial assistance, families who qualify are not guaranteed to receive it, or to receive it to the full extent of their assessed need.

For families applying for the 2018-2019 school year, the Financial Assistance Committee encourages families to complete their 2017 taxes early. To apply to receive 2018-2019 school year financial assistance, the Financial Assistance application deadline is: February 12, 2018. The deadline for submitting tax information is: February 28, 2018.

There is no guarantee that additional funds will be available for a second round of financial assistance applications and awards. The Committee's goal is that awards will be announced in March, 2018. After the February deadline, please check with the Director of Admission regarding tuition assistance.

To apply for 2018-2019 financial assistance by the February 12, 2018 deadline the following steps are required:

  1. Submit an application through School + Student Services (SSS) on the Sterne website (detailed instructions here)
  2. Send all required tax documentation to SSS
  3. Make sure you fill out the comments section for extenuating circumstances, if applicable.

Please note that financial assistance is contingent upon timely payment of agreed-upon tuition balances. Accounts that are not paid in full by the end of the school year will not be eligible for financial assistance.

Sterne utilizes the SSS system to process financial assistance.
