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 (PFS, or Parent Financial Statement) from this need assessment serves as a  guide to giving assistance to families, giving a recommendation as to an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses. Families need only complete one PFS, even if they are applying for more than one child. For students whose parents are separated, divorced, or have never been married, the noncustodial parent must also complete the noncustodial parent PFS in order for an award to be considered. All families applying for Financial Aid must upload supporting tax documents to the SSS site before an award can be made.
 
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.Financial Aid determination cannot be made until the admissions process is complete.
