Tuition Assistance

The deadline for filing Tuition Assistance Applications was January 10. Families may still be considered for aid but should contact the Admission Office before submitting an 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 cost of tuition 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. In this regard, please contact the Admission Office with any questions.

Watch this video for a brief explanation of how tuition assistance works:

Waynflete tuition assistance awards are need-based grants which are applied towards tuition. Repayment is unnecessary. Families can expect to be notified of their tuition assistance decision at the time of admission or shortly thereafter. 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 online application. Waynflete's School Code is 8068. The filing fee is $55 (Applicants are automatically evaluated for their eligibility to receive a fee waiver). The online application provides a point of departure for the Waynflete Tuition Assistance Committee. 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.

Due to budget limitations, Waynflete families paying the full tuition are unlikely to receive assistance in subsequent years. Waynflete families who experience significant and unexpected changes in their financial picture may contact the Admission office to discuss their circumstances. 

We encourage current and prospective 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
