Financial policies
Our financial policies ensure classroom and teacher stability, as well as the school’s ability to operate on a sound fiscal basis.
  • Enrollment agreements are a noncancellable contract to pay tuition for the entire school year
  • Tuition payments will begin in advance of attendance at WMS.

Your enrollment agreement will include detailed payment schedules and additional policies.

Our Tuition Assistance program

Tuition assistance awards are grants, not loans.

  • For the 2018-2019 school year we awarded over $797,000 in tuition assistance.
  • 21% of the total student body received aid.
  • Average tuition assistance award was $9,500.
We know that independent school tuition may seem daunting, so we urge you to look into Tuition Assistance. If our school is a good fit for your student and your family, we want to work with you so that your child may attend. Qualified Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary students are eligible to apply for tuition assistance. Awards are based on school policies, demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds.
