Books and Other Expenses
Although the school provides many textbooks, some texts (such as workbooks and lab manuals) must be purchased. Average annual cost is approximately $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 level of involvement.
Special Services Fees
Fees will be 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 in the program.
Tuition Payment Plans
The first payment will be due on June 1, 2019. Your student may not begin classes until the June, July, and August monthly payments are received. A $35 late fee will be assessed if full monthly payment is not received during the month that payment is due.
Early Withdrawal Policy
If a student withdraws after June 1, 2019, but before the first day of school, the family is responsible for paying the full tuition for the first quarter ($4,487.50). 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, 2019, a 5% late fee will be assessed on any outstanding balance. A 1% late fee will be assessed on the 1st of each month thereafter.
Our financial aid program is intended to help close the gap between the amount a family can afford and the cost of a Westminster education, and we expect every family to contribute to part of their student’s tuition. Westminster does not offer any academic, fine arts, or athletic scholarships.Learn More
We take many factors into consideration when determining a family’s ability to pay tuition, including income, assets, general living and medical expenses, financial obligations and number of dependents. Please also note that each case is evaluated individually. Therefore, families in the same income range may have different overall financial circumstances and consequently receive different amounts of financial aid.
For the 2017-18 academic year, we were able to assist 20% of the student body by awarding a total of $1.5 million in financial aid.
Apply for Financial Aid
Westminster uses Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process financial aid applications along with a review of tax and income information in order to determine financial aid awards.
