Starting Monday, November 2, 2015 you can visit the SSS website to begin the financial aid process by completing the Parent Financial Statement for the 2016-17 school year.
Financial Aid Overview
Wheeler’s financial aid program provides financial assistance to students who otherwise might not be able to afford the tuition. Our admissions process is need-blind, which means that financial need does not influence whether students are admitted.  Each student’s admission decision is based solely on academic merit and personal qualities. In addition, our financial aid process is need-based, which means that all financial aid is awarded based on a family's demonstrated financial need.  A student's academic merit and personal qualities do not influence the financial aid award.
