Tuition - Financial Aid

An Investment In Your Child's Future


At Northwood we recognize there are few investments as important as that made in your child's education. The Northwood experience in and out of the classroom is one that is unique and for many students life-changing. The cost of a Northwood education should not deter those families for whom the full tuition would be prohibitive. Northwood's need-based financial aid program allows it to attract the most qualified mission-appropriate students each admission cycle. Below you will find details and useful links about Northwood's financial aid program and near the bottom of the page, a breakdown of Northwood's tuition and fees.

Financial Aid

Our financial aid program is designed to provide financial assistance to families whose children might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Northwood School. This program is need-based and is guided by principles of good practice for financial aid administration. Families are expected to contribute according to their means, taking into account total income, assets, number of dependents, acceptable debt, financial obligations, and other appropriate information. This information is collected via the School and Student Services online platform (Solutions by SSS) and each family's completed Parents' Financial Statement (PFS).

The financial aid application can be completed at:

SOLUTIONS BY SSS

Financial aid awards are granted for one school year. It is the intention of the school to renew financial aid in each of the following years provided the family continues to demonstrate need, all financial commitments from the previous year are met, and the student remains in good academic and community standing.

Applications for financial aid can be submitted beginning in October 2018 for the 2019-20 academic year. The deadline for financial aid applications is January 31st. Northwood's school code in SSS is 5416.

Financial Aid Application requirements:

1) All parents/guardians must complete Parents Financial Statement (PFS). Parents/guardians filling combined income tax should submit one PFS. If parents/guardians are divorced or legally separated, each parent/guardian must submit an individual PFS.
