Qualifying for Access Applewild
Families currently enrolled at Applewild and families applying for admission to Applewild are eligible to be considered for a reduced tuition through the Access Applewild program. All families’ circumstances will undergo an individualized analysis as part of the process, and families will work closely with the Director of Admission.
The application priority deadline for returning families is January 15, 2019. After that decisions made on rolling basis. Applewild families who meet that deadline and qualify for Access Applewild will be provided with their tuition and re-enrollment contract in mid-February for the upcoming school year.
Prospective students and families are asked to submit their admission application and Access Applewild application as quickly as possible as the admission and Access Applewild processes are completed concurrently. If this deadline is met, prospective families will be provided with their admission decision on March 10, 2019, and will also receive their Access Applewild tuition. A family’s qualification profile does not affect a student’s acceptance to Applewild, and Access Applewild tuition is determined separately from the admission process. While we strive to meet the circumstances of all families, there may be times when a family does not qualify or may be placed on a waiting list for their specific tuition based on our School’s resources.
In addition to families completing an online financial analysis (called the Parents’ Financial Statement online), families are asked to submit the following documents:
2017 & 2018 tax returns
2016 tax returns (Required from NEW families ONLY)
2017 and 2018 W2s
Monthly Income and Expense report
The Monthly Income and Expense report will provide the Access Applewild Committee with greater transparency and individualization when reviewing each family’s unique circumstances. For families who have parents or guardians who are divorced or separated, each household must fully complete the qualification process.
Access Applewild relies on an objective, confidential financial analysis through a third party, School and Student Services, as the first step in a process that involves giving families a personalized experience that enables them to provide more meaningful information about their circumstances.
Unfortunately, we may not have the resources to offer an Access Applewild tuition for all students who qualify for admission and a reduced tuition. Similarly, we may not be able to offer a reduced tuition to all current Applewild families who choose to be considered for Access Applewild for the first time.
