A Webb Education with Financial Aid

At Webb, we recognize that choosing an independent school, especially a boarding school, is a major financial investment for families. For that reason, we are committed to helping families finance their children’s tuition costs and, therefore, making a Webb education available to all regardless of financial circumstances.

Our aid is need-based, i.e. awards are based on demonstrated financial of families which is determined through a financial aid application process. We do not offer academic or athletic scholarships which are not need-based.

For the 2016-2017 school year, Webb offered $4.3 million need-based financial aid awards ranging from several thousand dollars to nearly the full cost of tuition to 34% of our families from a broad range of income levels.

This past year our average boarding awards was $37,000 and our average day student award was $26,000. These awards are grants—not loans—and, therefore, do not have to be repaid.

Within the limitations of our budget, and according to our financial aid policies, Webb uses the services of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) recommendations as a guideline in determining individual financial aid awards.
In addition to financial aid, we have partnered with Your Tuition Solution to offer affordable education loans to families attending Webb.

Finally, financial aid is renewable and families are required to apply each year.

Tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is $60,845 for boarding students and $43,272 for day students. 

Families may also have annual, personal or incidental expenses averaging between $500-$900.
