To begin the process of exploring the opportunity for your son or daughter to experience all that Shattuck – St. Mary’s School has to offer, you should first discuss various opportunities for financial aid awards with either your Admission Office contact or Charlotte Smith, our Associate Director of Admissions. You may find that you qualify for a financial aid award, which you can also supplement with a structured payment plan. Each family is unique, and Shattuck – St. Mary’s is committed to helping you explore all of your options.
