Tuition & Affording Wilberforce
Did you know students spend 16,000 hours at school before they graduate? Those 16,000 hours are usually the best hours of a child's day. When choosing a school for your child, the decision you are facing is: where will my child be spending the best hours of their day, and is it worth it?
At Wilberforce, we recognize that those hours are influential and formative. We are intentional about stewarding those 16,000 hours with academic and spiritual formation. The fruit has been outstanding academic results, but most notably joy, deep friendships, and genuine faith.
We know that affording tuition is a sacrifice for most families. At Wilberforce, we work hard to bring this unique form of education within reach. Most families at Wilberforce receive need-based tuition assistance - ranging from 20% to 90% of tuition - depending on demonstrated need.
Many of our families are new to the world of independent schools and never considered a "private school" until they discovered Wilberforce. Sometimes when parents hear the term "tuition assistance" or "financial aid", they think "I make too much money to apply for financial aid" or " I don't want to take money away from those who need it more." The reality is, tuition assistance is a normal part of the process for most families.
We invite you to learn more about how to bring a Wilberforce education within reach. Please email or call our Admissions Department at (609) 924-6117 to talk about beginning this process. If you are ready to apply, click the link to our financial aid application.
