Guided by the Newtown Friends School mission of inclusion and accessibility, the school offers Flexible Tuition. In short, we want more families to have access to an independent school education. This innovative model for determining cost aligns tuition with what a family can afford to pay. Flexible Tuition allows mission-appropriate students to benefit from a dynamic Newtown Friends School education.
Newtown Friends School is generous, but resources are limited. We ask that families consider all of their financial resources before applying for Flexible Tuition. Each year, the demand for Flexible Tuition exceeds the allocated budget. Not all students, therefore, in need of Flexible Tuition will be funded. Admitted students who are not offered a Flexible Tuition award in the first round have the option to be placed on the Flexible Tuition waitlist should funding become available at a later date.
Installment Payment Plan
Newtown Friends School partners with Smart Tuition for collection of tuition and fees. Through this online payment system, families may arrange for one, two or tenth month payment plans. The ten month plan allows families to make payments over a 10-month period, beginning May 1st. Payments may be made by auto debit, check, and debit or credit card.PA 529 Plan Information
