TUITION + FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Financing an independent school education is an important investment in a child’s future. The value of educating a child at Woodlawn School – with our project based learning, rigorous academic program, small classroom size, personalized attention, superior faculty, state-of-the-art athletic facilities, community stewardship, and limitless opportunities beyond the classroom – is considerable. We recognize that the cost of a private school education can feel prohibitive to many families, and we are committed to making Woodlawn accessible and affordable for the family of each student we admit, regardless of financial circumstances.
why INVEST IN Woodlawn
Our culture is defined by ten core principles.
High challenge, high support, and a healthy regard for failure! Woodlawn students know success comes from healthy struggle, teamwork and support, and that failure leads to ultimate success.
Mastery of Life Skills! They are essential elements of our curriculum. Woodlawn students learn how to build and contribute to teams in ways that bring out the best in everyone, how to resolve conflicts, how to manage and organize themselves, how to plan for success and use time wisely. These essential Life Skills are original design elements of our curriculum and imbue our culture.
Mutual trust and respect, compassion and care. Woodlawn is a place where it is safe to care, a place where fellow students feel like brothers and sisters, a place where parents and teachers are partners. Woodlawn students look after each other and are guided by skilled mentor-teachers.
Togetherness! Pre-K through grade 12 are together. They inspire and enrich each other. Our older students embrace their special role – to be someone worth looking up to – and our youngest students remind everyone of the wonder that comes from discovery.
Embracing diversity and global awareness. Woodlawn is a place that’s safe for children to learn who they are, where they fit in the world, and that progress and success come from helping diverse people come together!
Servant Leadership – Engaging the community through service learning teaches our students that the best leaders are those who serve others with honesty, compassion, and empathy.
Our students are independent, lifelong learners who are responsible, contributing members of a diverse global society. Proven track record. The accomplishments of our alumni speak for themselves. From Ivy League college acceptances and national awards, to promising career opportunities.
