Financial Aid

With a commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive community, Newtown Friends School strives to make an independent school education affordable for students of varying financial resources. More than one-third of students at the school receive some amount of tuition assistance. There are no income limitations for financial aid consideration, but instead, a number of factors are evaluated including home equity, business-related expenses, consumer debt and the number of children attending a tuition-charging institution.

Tuition assistance is available for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. It is strictly need-based; families receiving assistance must reapply annually. The process of seeking and receiving assistance is separate from the admissions process.

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.
