Financial Aid

Westfield Friends School has made a commitment to have an economically diverse population. Financial aid is available to families who need it to ensure that tuition is not a barrier to affording a Westfield education. Since every family’s financial picture is different, we use the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), School and Student Services Form (SSS) to help determine need. The SSS financial application is available on-line at: http://sssbynais.org/parents (Westfield Friends School #4089). The helpline for this service is 1-800-344-8328. The report from this need assessment serves as a  guide to giving assistance to families.
 
The School’s Financial Aid Committee considers each application confidentially and works to make awards fair and in balance with the greater community. We are very proud of the school’s commitment to keeping Westfield Friends School financially accessible.We cannot consider a financial aid request unless we have an application to the School. 
 
Please feel free to contact Director of Finance & Operations at 856-829-0895 x.18 (cbeaton@westfieldfriends.org) if you need assistance or wish to discuss your financial situation further.
