Tuition & Financial Aid


So much of parenting is an investment. As perhaps the most significant financial investment outside of one’s home, we understand the commitment when investing in your children’s education, in their future. Selwyn expends a great deal of time and research to ensure that the value of a Selwyn education gives your children an advantage in college and well beyond. Despite this value, we fully understand that the cost of an independent school education is a struggle for some families. It is our priority to enable as many qualified students to attend Selwyn as we can.

Like most independent schools, our tuition and fees only cover a portion of the costs of educating our children. Selwyn’s Annual Fund and other efforts work to bridge that gap. In order for students to receive financial aid, they must meet all admissions requirements of the school.

Selwyn uses a system called “FACTS” to help determine the financial needs of our families. Financial aid need is reassessed annually and requires reapplication and updated financial and tax information. All data submitted through this process is kept confidential and used to determine financial aid, if any. International students are not eligible for financial aid from Selwyn.

Every application for financial aid from qualified students is assessed fairly and based upon demonstrated financial need. All families interested in financial aid must apply using the Grants and Aid function of FACTS.

To apply for financial aid:

  1. If you have an existing FACTS account, login to your account.
  2. If you do not already have a FACTS account, you can create one here.
  3. Once logged in, you will need to provide financial information such as tax filings, income, and expense information. Soon after this is provided, Selwyn will review your application and follow up.
  4. We encourage you to include a short letter if it would help to explain your particular situation.

FACTS aid applications are not considered final until all information is entered and required tax forms submitted to the website. It takes up to 14 days before submitted applications are marked as complete.
