At Westfield Friends School, we are mindful of the sacrifices and prioritizations parents make to give their children the very best opportunities they can. We work hard to keep costs competitive and affordable for our families and strongly believe that money should not be a barrier to a high-quality educational experience like that provided at Westfield Friends School. To this end, in addition to implementing our new Responsive Tuition program, we continue to offer our current families several Tuition Incentive Programs:
$5000 Tuition Rebate for Referring a New Student
The more quality students we have, the better off the school is from a cost of tuition to program perspective. We believe that parental word of mouth is our greatest resource for admissions. Our families understand the type of people we seek to welcome into our community and can help ensure the quality of our student body through their referrals. To that end, if a current parent refers a student to WFS, and the student is deemed a good fit and is enrolled, that parent will receive a tuition rebate up to $5000 spread out over four years and payable in January of each enrolled year (Year 1: $500, Year 2: $1500, Year 3: $1500, and Year 4: $1500). Please note that in order to receive the rebate each January, you must have at least one child enrolled at WFS and the student you referred must also remain enrolled.
$500 Tuition Rebate for Referring an 8th Grade Student
A current parent who refers a prospective eighth student who is admitted and enrolled will receive a $500 tuition rebate as long as at least one of the parent's children is enrolled at WFS.
We believe it is important to ease the financial burden for families with multiple children enrolled at WFS. Families with more that one child enrolled in the same academic year will receive a 5% tuition discount for each younger sibling of the oldest child. Please note that the sibling discount is not applicable to families who participate in Responsive Tuition.
Tuition Freeze for Middle School Years
For a student entering the Middle School, the Responsive Tuition Range (RTR) set for sixth grade at that time will remain the RTR for that student until he or she graduates.
Yes. You must be identified by the referred individual on his or her application at the time of submission AND you must notify the Director of Admissions of the referral details via email immediately after making the referral.
The first month of January that the referred student is an enrolled and current WFS student, a $500 rebate will be given to the referring family. Each January for the next three years that the referred student is enrolled and the referring family is enrolled, a $1500 rebate will be given to the referring family.
The rebate remains intact for the full four years as long as the referred student is enrolled for four years AND the referrer is the parent of an enrolled student for those same four years. If either the referrer or the referred leaves before the four year period is over, the discount ends. No additional rebate checks will be issued even if the referring family has not been able to take advantage of all four years of the tuition rebate.
As many as you like--there is no limit on the number of referrals you can make or how many corresponding rebates you will receive.
Yes. Referral incentives would be considered 'income' and therefore, annually, and before the rebate is applied, the referring individual will be required to provide a W-4 to the school.
The discount will be applied to each sibling of the oldest child enrolled.
The discount will be applied immediately.
If a sibling leaves the school, your tuition account will be adjusted to reflect a prorated discount.
Your Responsive Tuition Range (RTR) will be the same that is paid in grades four through eighth. However, if you enroll in the 7th grade, your RTR will not go up the following year, even if there is an increase in tuition.
