Tuition Assistance

Our tuition assistance program is designed to provide educational opportunities to students whose families may not be able to afford the full cost of tuition.

Deerfield-Windsor administers its tuition assistance program in accordance with the principles and practices of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). The school offers a limited amount of tuition assistance based on a family's need as determined by FACTS Grant & Aid.

To be considered for tuition assistance, families must submit an application to FACTS Grant & Aid, along with their most recent Federal Income Tax Form (1040). The application must be filed online. The fee to submit this application is $35. FACTS calculates the amount of demonstrated need and reports this to DWS.

Families are urged to apply as soon as possible. Priority consideration for current families will be given until March 15. Families must apply each year to be considered for tuition assistance.

Deerfield-Windsor School does not consider financial need in the admissions process, but it is important to know that we cannot meet the full amount of demonstrated need for all applicants. Recipients of tuition assistance are expected to remain in good academic standing and maintain acceptable behavior. Families receiving tuition assistance must meet all school financial obligations. Failure to meet any of these expectations can result in the termination of the tuition assistance grant. Tuition assistance grants are awarded on a one-year basis and will be reviewed annually. All information is maintained in strictest confidence by the members of the Tuition Assistance Committee.
