Thank you for considering a WMS education for your family. As you will learn through the admissions process, families find great value in the WMS experience and the distinctive way in which we prepare our children for a changing world.

For most families, affording an independent school requires careful financial planning. As such, we are committed to diligently working with families to close the gap between what they can afford and the actual cost of a WMS education. Valuing both socioeconomic and cultural diversity, one of our biggest priorities is to ensure a family’s financial constraints do not keep qualified children from applying to WMS.  Approximately one-third of current families receive financial aid.

Available to students in Lower School through 8th grade, WMS financial aid is based on the need of the family and has no bearing on our admission decisions. To be considered for financial aid, please complete an application online with the SSS Financial Assistance Program, a National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) company that conducts financial analysis to determine a family’s financial need.

The Board of Trustees purposefully keeps WMS tuition below the median of New England independent schools to allow a greater range of families the opportunity to enroll their children.

Tuition for the 2017-2018 academic year is:
