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. We accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the winter and spring. Families should first contact the Admission Office prior to submitting an application for tuition assistance.
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.
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. For Lower School families, awards in the range of 50 percent tuition assistance may be available to qualifying families. Contact the Admission Office for more information.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
