Financial Assistance

Approximately 30% of the student body receives financial assistance. We offer merit scholarships and need-based tuition assistance, beginning in kindergarten, to help families who qualify make a Westminster education a reality. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions about financial assistance options.

Westminster utilizes FAST, an online financial aid analysis service that provides a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. Financial aid does not need to be paid back to the school. Please contact the Office of Admissions to get more information about completing a FAST application, as funds are not always available at different times of the school year and an admissions offer must first be made.

After School Care

After-school supervision is provided every school day for Lower School students from 2:30 to 6 p.m. for an additional fee. There are various options to meet the needs of each family's schedule.
