Your investment in a Wheeler education for your family is among the most important decisions you will make.
The Wheeler Tuition Assistance Program
The Wheeler School makes tuition assistance considerations on the basis of financial assessments conducted byFamilies confidentially submit documentation to SSS, and Wheeler’s Tuition Assistance Committee carefully reviews the organization’s recommendation before considering a Tuition Assistance package.
Your investment in a Wheeler education for your family is among the most important decisions you will make. We recognize the thought and time you devote to choosing the best education available, and through the enrollment process, it is our aim to build a school environment that is both accessible and affordable for everyone.
Our philosophy of access and affordability
As a welcoming, inclusive community, Wheeler embraces and celebrates the commonalities and differences of our school and the wider world. We believe that a meaningful, purposeful life includes learning from all people — all genders, ethnicities, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. We know that the best standards of education — and our own school values — find that children build higher levels of empathy and achievement in a diverse environment.
Financial aid is available for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade based on need. To support families in making this investment, Wheeler’s Board of Trustees allocates a percentage of each year’s annual operating budget to providing tuition assistance. In addition, a legacy of alumni, parent and grandparent donors also make student tuition assistance a priority in their endowment and annual giving to the School, helping to ensure that children from all walks of life learn together. More than $4 million dollars of tuition assistance is awarded to 200+ students each year.
Returning families receiving aid can reasonably expect financial assistance each year assuming their financial profile remains the same. Applications for financial support must be completed by new and returning families every year by December 31 for the following school year. Late applications will be considered if there are remaining funds available. Awards are released only once all student accounts are current and in good standing with the business office.
