Tuition, room, and board for the 2017-2018 school year is $28,990 per semester: roughly the cost of a semester at a prestigious boarding school. In addition, students are required to have an incidental account containing $600 to pay for books, transportation, and other additional personal expenses. Tuition for our 2017 Summer Institute is $8,250.
Transportation to and from Washington, DC at the beginning and end of the term as well as during holiday periods is the responsibility of each student’s family.
SEGL is committed to attracting a diverse student body from a variety of geographic, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. Historically, nearly 50% of SEGL students have received some form of need-based financial assistance. Please do not hesitate to apply because of your family’s financial position.
SEGL uses the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) to process financial aid applications. SSS is a comprehensive financial aid management service administered under the National Association of Independent Schools and devoted to helping schools help families. Through an in-depth analysis of a family’s financial situation, SSS provides SEGL with an objective expected family contribution to tuition expenses.
Please note that February 15 is the Priority Application Deadline for Financial Assistance. Financial aid applications will still be considered after this date; however, financial aid packages may be more limited as available funding is allocated to admitted students.
To apply for financial aid, please click the SSS Parent’s Financial Statement logo below or click here. Then, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are beginning this process.
Note: in order to apply for financial aid, you will need to enter the SEGL school code: 5063. SEGL also requires the submission of tax forms, including your most recent Form W-2 and Form 1040. (If you have not yet completed your most recent taxes, please use the previous years, unless your family has experienced significant financial changes.) Please have these on hand when you begin the online application. If you plan on submitting hard copies, please allow time for them to arrive and to process in advance of the February 15 deadline. More details are available on the SSS site.
Finally, SSS charges a small fee for the financial aid application. A limited number of families may qualify for a fee waiver from SEGL. For more information, please contact admissions.
