Accessible Christian Education
Our goal is to make a Westminster education accessible for as many Christian families as possible.
Westminster’s financial aid program is intended to help close the gap between the amount a family can afford and the cost of a Westminster education. We expect every family to contribute to their student’s tuition.
We take many factors into consideration when determining a family’s ability to pay tuition, including income, assets, general living, medical expenses, financial obligations, and the number of dependents. Each case is evaluated individually. Therefore, families in the same income range may have different overall financial circumstances and consequently receive different amounts of aid.
- Assistance is based solely on the family’s financial budget. No honor, athletic, or artistic scholarships are awarded. Most families with incomes less than $125,000 receive some tuition aid. Most families with incomes of $75,000 or less receive substantial awards.
- Awards are made for one academic year; applicants for aid apply each year.
- Regarding the matter of divorce or separation, the Financial Aid Committee will consider the assets of both natural parents before making any award, and will not be bound by the assertion that one parent has disclaimed responsibility for educational expenses.
- Remarriage of either parent creates a new family unit with new relationships. The noncustodial parent (and any spouse) must also file the necessary financial aid forms.

- Books and Other Expenses
Although the school provides many textbooks, some texts (such as workbooks and lab manuals) must be purchased. The average annual cost for these additional texts is $100–200.
Other fees can include but are not limited to, school uniform, school supplies, iPad, trips, retreats, equipment, and athletic uniforms. These costs may range from $50–750 depending on a student’s grade or involvement.
- Special Services Fees for 2021–22
Fees are assessed according to the scope and nature of the services provided. Students receiving Learning Center services qualify for either full-time or consultative services. All new students begin with full-time service, which includes at least one pullout class.
- Part-time consultative service – $1,400
- The Learning Center (per pullout class) – $2,800/class
- Gifted Program – $1,400
- Tuition Payment Plans
Choose from one of the following three options:
Single Payment: Single payment due on June 1, 2021
Two Payments: Two equal payments due on June 1, 2021, and November 1, 2021
Ten Payments: Ten equal payments due on the first day of each month beginning June 1, 2021, and subsequent payments will be due on the first day of each month through March 1, 2022.
The first payment will be due on June 1, 2021. Your student may not begin classes until the June, July, and August monthly payments are received. A $30 late fee will be assessed if the full monthly payment is not received during the month that payment is due.
- Early Withdrawal Policy
If a student withdraws after June 1, 2021, but before the first day of school, the family is responsible for paying the full tuition for the first quarter. If a student leaves for any reason after classes have begun, the family is responsible for paying the full tuition for that quarter.
- Late Tuition Payments
Final grades, transcripts, and diplomas will not be released until all financial obligations are paid in full. On June 1, 2021, a five percent late fee will be assessed on any outstanding balance. A one percent late fee will be assessed on the first of each month thereafter.
Westminster does not offer any academic, fine art, or athletic scholarships.
