Tuition and Financial Aid

    • Middle School – $18,800

Upon acceptance to Devon Prep, you will be asked to forward a tuition deposit in the amount of $1000 to reserve your place in the grade for which you have applied. This is a non-refundable deposit, representing a credit to your tuition and fees.

Financial Aid

Those who wish to be considered for financial aid must submit a completed Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) to School & Student Services (SSS), administered by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Because resources are limited, we recommend applying for aid as early as possible. We begin reviewing financial applications as early as February of the school year prior to enrollment. For faster processing of your financial aid application, please apply online at sss.nais.org. Paper applications are available from Devon Prep upon request.

Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program (OSTC)

Devon Prep is an approved Opportunity Scholarship Organization and as such participates in the OSTC program.  Through the Program Devon Prep is able to provide financial aid funds to eligible students residing within the boundaries of a low-achieving school. You can find a list of low achieving schools and learn more about the OSTC Program at http://www.newpa.com/find-incentives-apply-for-funding/ostc-faq.

Scholarships

Each year, Devon Prep awards scholarships to sixth graders for their Middle School years and ninth graders for their Upper School years who have demonstrated academic achievement and who display potential for continued success. Top scorers on the entrance exam will be notified of their eligibility to qualify for a scholarship.* There are a number of scholarships for academically gifted students, including:

      • St. Joseph the Worker Scholarship
        This full tuition scholarship was established as an anonymous tribute to an Alumni Parent by his family. It was named for St. Joseph, who set the example as a servant of God and fellow man, and who led an ethical, humble and family-oriented life.

The following partial merit scholarships are awarded each year to students displaying scholarship, leadership and service—the characteristics of a Devon Prep student.

      • Rev. Stephen Bendik Scholarship
        Fr. Bendik was a Piarist Father who taught at Devon Preparatory School for nearly three decades and who held the distinction of teaching at all four of the Piarist schools in the United States.  The Rev. Stephen Bendik Scholarship was established in his memory by many of his former students and is granted on a merit basis to highly qualified young men who attend Devon Prep.
      • Class of 1969 Memorial Scholarship
        In recognition of the many benefits of the education they received at Devon Prep, and with a desire to give back to the school, the Class of 1969 established the first endowed Alumni Scholarship fund at Devon Prep. Many members of this class were only able to attend Devon Prep because of the financial assistance they received. They have established this partial scholarship to help provide the same opportunity to an outstanding and deserving student today and to honor the memory of their deceased classmates Paul Driscoll, Conrad Kruse, Chris Bonelli, Rich Fairbanks, and Bill Wilson.
      • Stephen and Bernice Senye Scholarship
        This fund was established through a generous bequest from the first headmaster of Devon Prep to provide scholarships for deserving students attending Devon Preparatory School.
      • Martin J. Devine Scholarship
        This scholarship was established by the Devine family in memory of Mr. Martin Devine, father of five Devon graduates.
      • Kevin Flatley Scholarship
        This scholarship was established by his family to honor the memory of Kevin Flatley ’75, a gifted student and athlete.
      • Martin W. Bowen Scholarship
        This scholarship was established by alumni in memory of Mr. Martin Bowen, who chaired the English department and taught English, Film, and History courses at Devon Prep for 40 years. In addition to his role on the faculty, Mr. Bowen directed the school theater productions and moderated other clubs and activities.

*Notification of scholarship eligibility is NOT a notification of acceptance. A completed application (including recommendations and transcripts) must be submitted before an admission decision can or will be made.
