TUITION ASSISTANCE

Good Shepherd Episcopal School is committed to assisting as many families in need as possible and almost 20% of our families receive some level of tuition assistance. If a student is accepted to Good Shepherd, the student's need, the family's circumstances and ability to pay, and the availability of tuition assistance funds are all taken into consideration. Good Shepherd uses a third-party program, School and Student Services (SSS) located in Princeton, New Jersey to help us assess a family’s ability to pay school costs. SSS helps us make objective and equitable tuition assistance decisions. We follow best practice guidelines as established by the National Association of Independent Schools in the granting of tuition assistance awards and as such, we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, or national origin. 

Detailed information on tuition assistance is available in either the Admission or Advancement Office in December of the preceding year. If you are interested in applying for assistance, you must complete the required forms and submit them online to SSS. Families are required to provide prior and current-year tax returns as part of the application process, along with a letter of request. Applications for tuition assistance are held in confidence.

Good Shepherd does not offer merit scholarships.
We know, statistically, that once a student joins our community at Good Shepherd, families want them to remain here through eighth grade, and we want to do our part to make that happen. We also know how fortunate we are that 31% of our families have more than one child enrolled at GSES. While we do not give tuition reductions for the number of children a family has in private schools, we are sensitive to this being the tipping point in some families’ ability to stay at our school and encourage all of our families with multiple students to discuss their options for tuition assistance.

All families interested in learning more about tuition assistance or are applying for tuition assistance for the first time, should schedule a meeting by e-mailing, mmadurai@gsesdallas.org, to answer any questions and help with the process or to discuss options. Your application is strictly confidential, but it does involve providing certain financial information and meeting several deadlines.‚Äč

Good Shepherd Episcopal School does not discriminate in the administration of its financial aid on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or gender. All information relating to applications for financial aid will be held by Good Shepherd Episcopal School in the strictest of confidence and will not be released to any third party. Documentation from custodial, non-custodial and stepparents will not be shared with other members of the student's family.
