Tuition & Financial aid
by the numbers
Tuition for the 2020-2021 school year
The total cost to educate a student at SPCS is significant and considerably more that the tuition charged: at scale, the cost to educate each boy is $34,400. Tuition for the 2020-21 school year is $17,250. The school is committed to continue to make enrollment affordable. For the 2019-20 academic year, more than $250,000 was awarded in tuition assistance.
Saint Paul's Choir School strives to be as need-blind as it can be. While some families pay the full tuition, others receive need-based financial aid in order to lower their tuition costs. If your son is accepted to the school, SPCS is happy to work with your family towards making you son's enrollment affordable.
Financial aid is determined on a needs basis. Aid awards are based upon an independent review of the standard FACTS financial aid application, available at the following link: Financial Aid Application.
Please note, financial aid applications are due by February 24, 2020.

Enrollment Registration Fee to Hold your space!
An enrollment registration fee of $500 for returning students is due by March 15, 2020 to hold the space and give priority consideration for available financial aid funds. New students entering for the 2020-21 academic year must submit an enrollment registration fee by April 15, 2020.
