Access Applewild is a responsive and responsible approach to tuition

Access Applewild reflects our deeply held beliefs about who we are as an institution and how we can better serve the families who share our vision that education is an investment with far-reaching dividends for children, families, and communities.

At Applewild, we seek bright, enthusiastic children who love to learn, and families who are committed to investing in an independent school education for their children. Through Access Applewild, these families can apply for reduced tuition based on their financial circumstances. We expect each family to contribute financially to their child's education, and many families pay the full cost of tuition, but we also realize that investing in an Applewild education is a stretch for many families. Through Access Applewild, families pay anywhere from 20% - 90% of full tuition. If you are as committed to investing in your child’s education as we are, we invite and encourage you to apply.

Our specific, confidential, and individualized process

  1. If you haven’t already spoken with us, please inquire. We won’t be able to tell you what your family contribution would be at Applewild until you’ve completed a Parents’ Financial Statement, but we would be happy to speak with you about whether investing in an Applewild education would be right for your family.

  2. Complete a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). If you are applying for admission into Applewild, and are interested in applying for reduced tuition through Access Applewild, please start here. After creating an account, you will be prompted to complete a PFS and upload supporting documents, as well as including any extenuating circumstances that might make it difficult for your family to afford Applewild.

  3. We will determine what we think your family’s contribution should be, and we will let you know at the same time we send out admissions decisions.
