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 financial aid budget comes entirely from many generous alumni, parents, and friends. In recent years, 40% of our students have received financial aid; the range of grants is from $1000 to $55,600.
We award tuition assistance 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 of whether 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 life of the school. An applicant is first accepted for enrollment and then the family’s application for assistance is considered.
Woodberry's tuition assistance program is open to students of any race, creed, and national or ethnic origin. Parents' Financial Statements are due at Woodberry by January 31, and complete financial aid applications are due by February 25.
The tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is $55,600. This price includes room, board, and all school activities. There are no activity fees.
