Tuition & Financial Aid

 

This past year has matured Ben in so many ways and he genuinely has enjoyed every minute of it! He wishes he had come sooner to WMA. He has made such an impact in a year and we are so very proud of him and what WMA has molded him to be as a person, athlete and student. It has been such a wonderful experience of making life long connections, friendships and learning experiences.

 

Dean and I have such a great feeling knowing we made the right decision and investment for Ben that will carry him thru life and create successes for him in the future.

- Laurie Wisniewski, mother of Ben Wisniewski '18

Financial Aid

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 are committed to making WMA accessible to families of varied economic backgrounds and recognize that many families who might not expect to be eligible for financial aid do qualify. 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 Financial Aid.

APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID

Wilbraham & Monson Academy uses information compiled by School & Student Services (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools. SSS analyzes the information you provide to them on the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) and calculates an estimate of what your contribution to educational expenses may be. The Academy uses this calculation as a tool along with your financial documents, such as tax returns and W2s, to determine your tuition pricing.

New Students: Please note on your WMA Admission application that you will be applying for Financial Aid.

As early as November 1, complete a Parents' Financial Statement online at sss.nais.org but no later than January 1 for returning students and January 31 for new students.

Once your PFS is complete, please remit the following documents to SSS with your cover sheet.

  • 2018 W2s
  • Signed copies of your 2018 Tax Return and all supporting schedules. If your 2018 Return is not complete, you may remit a copy of your 2017 Return and once completed, remit the 2018 Return. Please note that all discounts are conditional upon our review of the 2018 Return.
  • Business Owners must file a Business/Farm Statement on the SSS website and remit your business return to SSS.
  • Divorced or Separated Parents must each file individual Parent Financial Statements and remit your tax returns.

Tuition decisions are mailed to New Students on March 10 with their admission decision and Returning Students on February 1 with their enrollment contract.

Late Applications for Financial Aid

Families who have initiated the application process too late to allow them to comply with the deadlines above are encouraged to proceed. However, the financial resources cannot be guaranteed, and amounts of discounts at this time may be limited.
