How to Afford a St. Nicholas Education

St. Nicholas School values diversity in its school population. Families who feel they need assistance in funding a St. Nicholas education are encouraged to apply for financial aid.  You may find that you qualify for a financial need-based award, which you can also supplement with loans or a combination of payment plans. 

All decisions relative to financial aid are made independent of the admission process and will not impact in any way a child’s possibility for admission. Each family is unique, and we are here to help you determine the best plan for you. We look forward to serving your family. 

Financial Assistance
If applying for financial assistance, please contact the St. Nicholas School Business Office to let us know.  The Financial Assistance Application is to be completed online. If you have questions, contact Jeff Denton or Sally Williams by email or by calling 423-899-1999. The deadline for filing a financial aid application for consideration in the first round of allocations is Monday, February 10, 2020.

St. Nicholas subscribes to the principles and services of School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), which provides a financial analysis based on the confidential statement of need as noted on the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS).  SSS reports provide a point of departure for St. Nicholas in determining all final decisions on financial aid amounts.

Tuition Refund Plan 
Since an education investment represents a substantial sum, 
St. Nicholas offers a method to protect the investment through a tuition refund insurance program provided by Protect My Tuition. If interested in tuition refund insurance, contact Jeff Denton, the school's Business Manager.
