St. Luke’s believes that the cost of tuition should not prohibit families from considering admission.

Need-Based Tuition Assistance 
For those families who cannot afford the full cost of tuition, our need-based Tuition Assistance Program was established to ensure access and opportunity to families from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. These grants can range from a few thousand dollars to a full award based on the individual need of the family. We strive to fully fund demonstrated need, but cannot support lifestyle choices.  
St. Luke's School is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.

To get started, please visit the Clarity Family Application Guide which provides instructions on the process. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit.

St. Luke's School Code is: 6530

Please remember to return to your dashboard after you complete and submit your Clarity Application, as St. Luke's requires you to upload additional tax documentation.

The deadline for completing the financial aid application including relevant supplemental documents is December 1 for current families and December 31 for new families.

If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available through the “Help” button in the bottom left of the screen, as well as email and phone support at or 206-210-3752, in both English and Spanish.
