Scholarship & Tuition Assistance


Our students thrive in a culture where differences are honored and religious diversity is accepted and celebrated. At FXW, we believe that the highest quality education is only possible in a community that welcomes all. Children will be better prepared for the world when they have spent their critical early years learning and growing in a diverse community of peers. As a keystone of our community and a commitment to our mission statement, FXW provides need-based scholarships to 30 percent of our students.

In addition to our partnerships with local scholarship organizations, civic leaders and FXW school parents established the Children at the Crossroads Foundation in 1990 with the mission of raising funds to give every child the opportunity to attend The Frances Xavier Warde School.

Parents of students receiving assistance are required to support a portion of their child’s tuition. Families must re-apply each year and information regarding children who receive financial aid is kept confidential.

Each academic year, returning families are given priority consideration for financial aid. For more information regarding the scholarship process, please contact Sue Smeaton, Director of Admissions.

The Frances Xavier Warde School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs or athletic and other school-administered programs.
