As a keystone of our community and a commitment to our mission statement, FXW provides need-based assistance for families. All tuition assistance is based on demonstrated need as determined by the information that you provide to School and Student Services (SSS), an independent scholarship processing service.

Tuition Assistance Scenarios

The following scenarios are designed using FXW’s 2022 – 2023 tuition and serve as examples of the types of cases considered by the Tuition Assistance Committee. Each family’s financial picture is unique, and a great deal of information is considered as part of FXW’s need-based financial aid awards.

These scenarios do not represent the full scope of the information considered by the Committee, nor are the financial aid awards outlined below definitive for specific circumstances.

FXW’s tuition assistance decisions support the mission of the School and are guided by NAIS’s Principles of Best Practice for Financial Aid Administration.
