Tuition Deposit: Upon your child's acceptance to Woodland School, we require a deposit in the amount of 10% of your child's tuition to reserve their space at Woodland for the upcoming year. Several payments plans are available.
Woodland School's Tuition Assistance program is designed to make a Woodland education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. Woodland is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family's level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application, which includes assets, income, expenses and debts.
To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is also mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return to it at any time. At the end of the application, there is a a $60 fee to submit, and you can share your application with additional schools that accept the Clarity Application for no additional charge. Simply use the dropdown menu in the application to select those schools.
Please remember to return to your dashboard after you complete and submit your Clarity Application, as Woodland requires you to upload additional tax documentation including 2023 tax returns once they become available.

Woodland uses the Clarity Application. To get started, please create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit, and you can share your application with additional schools that accept the Clarity Application at no additional charge.
Woodland School is proud to use the Clarity Application to determine a family's level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application, which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts.
The amount of money you receive depends on your need and the number of other families requesting assistance. If your financial circumstances remain the same, you can generally expect to receive approximately the same size award each year. For example, if you initially received half the total tuition and there is no change in your financial situation, you will most likely receive half of the total tuition again the next year that you apply.
