Financial Aid

We encourage all families who may feel the cost of attendance to be prohibitive to apply for financial aid.

In order to be considered for need-based financial aid, families must complete the School for Student Services' (SSS) Parent's Financial Statement (PFS). In addition, families will also need to upload their 2017 and 2018 tax return to the SSS site. There is a $51 application fee to apply, which may be waived dependent on the family's financial circumstances.

December 1, 2018 4-5pm
January 12, 2019 4-5pm

Woodland offers optional workshops to help families navigate the application process and to have your questions answered prior to submitting the PFS. A review of the application requirements followed by a group Question and Answer session will be offered at each workshop. You will also have a chance to meet one-on-one with a member from the financial aid committee to address individual needs. 

To reserve a spot at these workshops, we ask you to send an email to: admissions@woodland-school.org. Please provide your name, date you wish to attend, and any specific questions you have about financial aid.
