All tuition assistance, which is Woodberry's term for financial aid, is based on a family's need. We consider a wide range of factors, including family income and how many siblings a boy has. Woodberry is committed to making sure its boarding school opportunities are available to all deserving boys, and that's why the school meets 100 percent of a family's financial need when it admits a boy who requires tuition assistance.
Because the actual cost of educating each student exceeds that of our tuition and fees, every Woodberry student, in effect, receives aid — the difference between the tuition and fees and the actual cost of a Woodberry education.
Our substantial tuition assistance budget comes entirely from many generous alumni, parents, and friends. In recent years, 47 percent of our students have received assistance; the range of grants is $3,500 to $60,700.
We award 7 million dollars in tuition assistance annually to many middle-income families, families with relatively high incomes but more than one child in school, and those whose financial circumstances qualify them for a grant that equals the full cost of tuition and fees. Even if you're unsure if you qualify for assistance, we encourage you to apply.
Applying for tuition assistance has absolutely no effect on a student’s application for admission. Admission decisions are based on a student’s qualifications and the likelihood that he will contribute to the school's life. A family’s application for tuition assistance is considered separately from the application for admission.Woodberry's tuition assistance program is open to students of any race, creed, and national or ethnic origin.
