part of the FIT program
Keeping a great education affordable is a key part of our vision. In our private elementary, middle, and high schools, we prioritize delivering the highest quality education and experience to our Dragons. A primary focus is equipping our students with the skills and attributes sought by institutions of higher education, including strong academic skills, critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and well-rounded personalities.
The school in turn understands the need to keep a great education affordable. We are fortunate to have teachers, administrators, parents, and trustees who are committed to supporting quality programs for an economically diverse student community.
Use this income guide to get a general idea of where your family may fall into the FIT program. These categories are based on gross total income for all members of a given family. Multiple tuitions can include tuitions paid to SGS for more than one student, or tuitions paid for students in other tuition charging schools. The guidelines below may not apply in situations where assets and investments exceed typical ranges for households with the annual total income in each group listed below. Additionally, the guide below may not apply for households with their own business.
As a tuition-driven school, Saint George’s relies on tuition dollars and donations alone to fund our budget. Every family will make a contribution toward their student’s tuition.
We are excited that you are considering Saint George’s School (SGS) for your family! Finding the best school that is the right fit for your child is critical to their success. We understand that each child’s needs are individualized, just as each family’s household needs are unique, so tuition should be personalized based upon each family situation too.
Therefore, it is imperative to tailor tuition rates accordingly, ensuring that students from diverse backgrounds have the opportunity to enroll in one of Spokane’s best private schools.
FIT is designed to increase access to a high quality SGS private education for academically qualified students who are seeking a dynamic learning opportunity, and who will contribute to advancing the mission of Saint George’s School: Inspiring scholars, athletes, and artists to serve and lead others.
Choosing the perfect fit for your child’s education is a personal decision and we understand that many factors, including tuition, contribute to your final decision. The FIT program personalizes each family’s rate of tuition so that a Saint George’s education is within financial reach. As we move through the FIT application process to determine your family’s contribution, please know that fairness and confidentiality are at the heart of this process. We know a Saint George’s education is a transformative experience and believe that all students who are academically qualified and eager to learn should have the opportunity to become Dragons. FIT makes this possible!
