Since its founding, WES has provided financial aid for qualified students whose families are unable to afford full tuition and expenses.WES is proud of its legacy of supporting deserving students and families. On average, 28% of WES families receive a Financial Aid award. Citizens of the U.S. and non-U.S. citizens who reside in the U.S. and hold green cards are, if otherwise qualified, eligible for financial aid. Please note: WES does not provide Financial Aid for PK3 or PK4.
WES allocates funds equal to or greater than 10% to nearly 15% of its annual tuition income to provide financial aid for deserving students. Financial aid is also funded through the generosity of foundations, investment income, individual restricted gifts, and a portion of the auction revenue and the annual fund. The financial aid program is a priority of the Board of Trustees.
If your family wishes to be considered for financial aid, please file a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) with School and Student Services by NAIS (SSS) by February 1 for the following school year.
Please also send to SSS (and not to WES as requested in the past) the following required documents: a complete copy of your most recent federal income tax return (with W2s and all schedules included). Please confirm with the Office of Admission and Financial Aid that your SSS application was filed by the deadline.
The PFS need only be completed once; you may request that it be sent to all prospective schools.
