Tuition and Financial Aid
Tuition, Room and Board
Tuition for the 2015-2016 school year is $20,000 for one semester. This includes room and board. In addition to tuition families are required to pay a $500 activity fee to cover the cost of books, field trips, and other activities throughout the term. Tuition can be paid all at once or with a payment plan that goes the duration of the student's semester. A deposit of 20% of the total tuition is required with the educational contract to hold the space for a student before the semester begins.
We are committed to providing The Woolman Semester School experience to a diverse group of students, and we have generous donors who share that commitment. Financial aid is available. Over seventy-five percent of Woolman students receive financial aid, so please don't let cost prevent you from applying.
