Tuition Payment Options
Woodland School has contracted with FACTS Tuition Management to help manage your payment tuition plans and extended care billing. Woodland School has also made arrangements to offer the protection of tuition refund insurance with Dewar Insurance.
Tuition Deposit – Upon your child's acceptance to Woodland School, a tuition deposit of $2,000 is due to reserve their space at Woodland for the fall regardless of which payment plan you choose. For families choosing either Payment Plan B or C, Dewar Tuition Refund Insurance is required.
Woodland School is committed to serving an economically diverse community of students. Our financial aid process honors that commitment by making a Woodland education affordable to all who are qualified, regardless of their financial resources.
In order to be considered for need-based financial aid, families must complete the School and 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.
FINANCIAL AID WORKSHOPS

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.

Woodland uses School and Student Services to process Financial Aid applications. You may apply by visiting the SSS website for Families at http://sssbynais.org/parents and clicking "Complete Your PFS."
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.
To create a new account, please visit the SSS Website for Families at http://sssbynais.org/parents and clicking "Complete Your PFS."
Parents can create an account by clicking on "Create An Account" on the left side of the Family Portal login page. You will be asked to provide some profile information as well as answers to security questions which will be used to assist in re-setting your password should you need to do so in the future. You then will be emailed a link to create a new password. If you don't see the email in your inbox, you should check your junk mail and spam folders.
Please note the person you list in your account profile when logging in for the first time will automatically be listed as Parent A on the PFS and cannot be changed. While Parent A does not need to be the head of household, it does need to be the name of a custodial parent and NOT the student applicant.
