Financial Aid

From its founding in 1950, St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's stated mission has been to enroll students who represent a wide range of backgrounds. Our financial aid program assists qualified children who might not otherwise have access to an independent school education. Because we believe that every child is entitled to a quality education, each year, St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's strives to meet the needs of our accepted applicants requesting financial aid.

The competition for financial aid funding makes it critical that families submit all requested materials in a timely manner. Financial Aid is open to all students in nursery-grade 8. Financial Aid is also available for our After School Program. Families who indicate that they plan to apply for Financial Aid on their application will automatically have their application fee waived.


St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s currently works with TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services) to handle all financial aid applications. We are confident that your experience with them will be manageable, convenient, and pleasant. You will be guided through the process directly by the exceptional TADS personnel who will be your primary contact for all financial aid questions. It is important to note that final decisions regarding financial aid awards will be handled by the SHSH Financial Aid Committee.

If you require assistance at any point during your financial aid application process, please contact TADS from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, at (800) 884-8237. You will also find helpful information and all answers to your questions on their web site:
