Affording EA

EA is committed to enrolling a diverse student body from varying economic backgrounds. Financial aid requests have no impact on the admission decisions made by the Admission Committees.

Financial aid is based on demonstrated financial need, as determined by the information you provide to Clarity, an independent processing center used by EA. A copy of your most recent 1040 Federal Tax Return will be requested for review through Clarity as well. 


Application Process & Timeline

While Financial Aid deadlines occur later in the admission season, we encourage families who are applying for the 2024-2025 school year to start the process as soon as possible.

  • Step 1: Visit the Clarity Family Portal and create your account. Once you apply for financial aid you will be able to log into the Family Portal using the same email address and password.
  • Step 2: Submit your financial information for the Academic Year 2024-25. We ask that all families submit by December 1, 2023.
  • Step 3: When you are finished your application, or should you have questions along the way, please contact Director of Financial Aid Carolyn Deignan. (

Episcopal Academy’s Financial Aid Committee reviews each request for assistance and determines the grant based on the family’s need and the school’s budget. Financial Aid decisions are announced to new families in mid-January 2024 should all deadlines been met. After this date, financial aid decisions will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis.


If you have any questions, please reach out to Director of Financial Aid Carolyn Deignan. (
