Tuition Assistance

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

The Waynflete Tuition Assistance 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 tuition assistance candidates must qualify based on family earnings and assets. The school's Tuition Assistance Committee renders all tuition assistance decisions and annually awards aid based on a family’s demonstrated need and available funds. We ask families to apply for tuition assistance 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 tuition assistance budget is significant the school is unable to award tuition assistance to all applicants who meet our admission criteria and qualify for assistance. When considering requests for tuition assistance the school may therefore decide to offer admission only to those students to whom we also can offer assistance. Awards to Lower School students are limited in number and rarely exceed 50% of tuition.

Waynflete tuition assistance awards are need-based grants which are applied towards tuition. There is no expectation for a family to repay a tuition assistance grant. Families can expect to be notified of their tuition assistance 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 Tuition Assistance Committee.

Families applying for assistance 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 Tuition Assistance 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 tuition 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 tuition assistance by contacting the Admission Office to discuss their circumstances.

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

Any questions related to tuition assistance may be directed to Ed Knoll, Associate Dean of Admission and Tuition Assistance, at 207.774.5721, ext. 1396 or eknoll@waynflete.org.
