Financial Aid

Financial Aid Scenarios

Need-based financial aid is a grant awarded to those families who qualify; it is not a loan. Because financial circumstances vary significantly from family to family, the scenarios presented above are for illustrative purposes to demonstrate a range of incomes and factors that are taken into consideration when financial aid awards are made.

  • Financial aid is available for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade to current Wilmington Friends School families and to those applying for admission.
  • The average financial aid award is $14,987.
  • Financial aid awards are made on a case by case basis to families who have completed a financial aid application, and who qualify for financial aid, as determined by their application.
  • "Need" covers a wide range, from substantial need to a need for moderate assistance to bridge the gap between what a family can afford and the full cost of tuition.
  • The financial aid committee makes every effort to make a Friends School education affordable for all families.
  • Please review our financial aid policy.
Families receiving financial aid must submit a new application and up-to-date tax returns each year they wish to receive aid. Families who do not qualify or who have been wait-listed for financial aid in a given year are welcome to apply again for the following school year.   
Applications for financial aid for the 2022-23 school year are now available.
