Affording St. Matthew's
It is our desire that St. Matthew’s be accessible to children from a wide range of economic backgrounds, whose parents are supportive of the School’s mission and who are well suited for admission. To accommodate families' varying financial needs, we offer both financial aid and tuition payment plans.

Any questions regarding the monthly tuition plan options should be directed to Ellen Pfahler, Director of Finance at [email protected].
St. Matthew's offers financial aid for the combined purposes of broadening the socio-economic diversity of students, ensuring that the school remains affordable to both existing and prospective families, and allowing the composition of the student body to represent, as fully as possible, the community served by the Parish. Our aim is that no child who is well-suited for admission be denied the opportunity of attending because of an inability to pay the full tuition and fees. The Financial Aid Committee, consisting of the Rector and School Administrators determines eligibility for Financial Aid Grants.
In making recommendations, the Committee will consider the following:
