Financial Aid Process

How to Apply

St. Albans uses the Clarity platform for financial aid. The financial aid application process will open on October 1. To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly and permits the user to save their progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit.

Please remember to return to the Clarity dashboard after you complete and submit the application.

The deadline for completing the financial aid application including relevant supplemental documents is January 3, 2024 (for current St. Albans families) or by January 24, 2024 (for applicants to St. Albans).

  • Financial Aid Policies

    • All parents—custodial and non-custodial, natural and stepparent—must complete the financial aid application in Clarity. Failure to do so may result in the School’s not granting financial aid. It is the position of St. Albans that all parents retain the obligation to contribute to the education of their children, whether or not there is a legal agreement between them to do so. The School expects each parent to contribute as much as calculations show they can afford, even if a divorce settlement stipulates a different amount.
    • The Financial Aid Committee receives financial aid recommendations from Clarity based on a computerized systematic analysis of the family’s financial situation. The committee awards financial aid based upon the review of those recommendations.
    • Any student to whom financial aid is awarded can expect that aid to continue as long as he remains in good academic and disciplinary standing at St. Albans and provided his family continues to demonstrate need and is not in financial arrears. Application for assistance must be submitted annually.
    • Preliminary awards will be communicated to current families in February and to admitted students in March. The School may amend an award after a review of additional financial information and amended awards are released in May.
