2023-2024 SAR 2-YEAR NURSERY, 3-YEAR NURSERY, and 4-YEAR NURSERY

TUITION ACCESSIBILITY GRANT (TAG)

Offering a Limited Number of $2,500 Tuition Grants to students in 2-year nursery and $5,000 Tuition Grants to students in 3-year or 4-year nursery.

We are pleased to announce an SAR Tuition Accessibility Grant (TAG) for the 2023-24 school year. The SAR TAG initiative is specifically targeted to address the tuition burden of families who are struggling with the high cost of day school education. Although for many that challenge is addressed by need-based scholarships, there is a segment of our community that does not qualify for traditional financial assistance, but still struggles to pay full tuition. TAG is designed to provide tuition relief for these families.

All SAR families who meet the eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply. Families who meet the eligibility requirements will receive a tuition grant ($2,500 for a student in 2-year nursery; $5,000 for a student in 3-year or 4-year nursery) to be applied against their tuition charges at SAR for the 2023-24 school year.

ELIGIBILITY

  • New applicants to the school as well as existing students are eligible to apply for the grant.
  • The adjusted gross income of applicant families may not exceed $275,000.
  • Families who do not meet the income cutoff may be eligible for the grant if they have other extraordinary or atypical expenses.
  • Only applicants who are in good financial standing and who in the absence of this grant would be paying full tuition are eligible to apply for the grant. The grant cannot be combined with any other financial assistance, affordability grant or discount.
  • Completed applications will be reviewed and grants awarded, in the order they are received. Only the first 25 qualified applicants will be guaranteed to receive a grant.
  • Grant applications will only be considered for current SAR students once they have completed pre-registration for the 2023-24 school year.
  • Grant applications will be considered for prospective SAR students in parallel with their application for admission to the school.
