Financial Aid
We believe that all students should have the ability to consider an independent-school education to further their lifelong academic goals. We strive to help every qualified applicant afford a four-year education at SEM. Although we do not have the ability to award aid to everyone, we make every effort to offer assistance to as many deserving students as possible. The amount of the financial award depends solely upon the financial resources of the family.
