Flexible Tuition Pricing

Wilbraham & Monson Academy strives to bring a private school education to exceptional, well-rounded students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend. We have a tremendous respect for the significant personal and financial sacrifices families make to ensure their children have an outstanding education.

We recognize that many families, who might not expect that they are eligible for financial aid, do qualify for a tuition break.

Through our Flexible Tuition Pricing, we are committed to making our school accessible to families of varied economic backgrounds. If you feel your family cannot afford the full tuition, during your admission process we encourage you to also apply for a financial assessment to determine if you are eligible for Flexible Tuition Pricing. (Please see Applying for Flexible Tuition Pricing below)

We, at Wilbraham & Monson Academy, feel we have a strong responsibility to our student body and school to build a community of  remarkable students who will hold themselves to the highest of standards in all aspects of their lives.
