Financial Aid

Waynflete's financial aid application deadline is January 10. After this deadline, families who are applying for admission may still be considered for financial assistance but should contact the Admission Office before submitting a financial aid application.

The Waynflete Financial Aid program has a dual purpose: to provide deserving students the opportunity for a quality education that might otherwise be unobtainable, and to enable students from a diverse mix of social, cultural, and economic backgrounds to attend Waynflete.

To be eligible to receive financial aid candidates must qualify based on family earnings and assets. The school's Financial Aid Committee renders all financial aid decisions and annually awards aid based on a family’s demonstrated need and available funds. We ask families to apply for financial aid only after they have considered all of their available resources and determined the full tuition cost is beyond their means.

Waynflete is fortunate to have many outstanding applicants for Admission. While the financial aid budget is significant the school is unable to award financial aid to all applicants who meet our admission criteria and qualify for assistance. When considering requests for financial aid the school may therefore decide to offer admission only to those students to whom we also can offer aid. Awards to Lower School students are limited in number and rarely exceed 50% of tuition.

Waynflete financial aid awards are need-based grants which are applied towards tuition. There is no expectation for a family to repay a financial aid grant. Families can expect to be notified of their financial aid decision within ten days of receiving their letter of admission to the school. Under no circumstances would a family be required to make an enrollment decision prior to notification from the Financial Aid Committee.

Families applying for aid should complete the PFS online. Waynflete's School Code is 8068. The filing fee is $48. The PFS provides a point of departure for the Waynflete Financial Aid Committee to determine an award. Other required paperwork includes copies of Federal tax returns and W-2 Earning Statements. These supporting documents must be submitted as soon as they are available. All records and correspondence are held in the strictest confidence.

Families who enter Waynflete without financial assistance should not expect to receive aid in future years. If a parent or guardian experiences a significant change in their financial picture they may request consideration for financial assistance by contacting the Admission Office to discuss their circumstances.

We encourage families to closely review our Financial Aid Policies and Procedures and responses to Frequently Asked Questions, both available on this website.

Any questions related to financial aid may be directed to Ed Knoll, Associate Dean of Admission and Financial Aid, at 207.774.5721, ext. 1396 or eknoll@waynflete.org.
