A Winsor education is an incredible investment in a girl’s future. Winsor believes in enrolling talented students with great potential regardless of their families’ financial circumstances, and awards over $4.8 million annually in need-based financial aid to make the School financially accessible to a range of families. 

For the 2021–22 academic year, Winsor’s comprehensive tuition is $53,900. Over 25% of our students receive need-based tuition assistance, with grants covering from 5% to 99.5% of overall tuition.
 
 
We welcome applications for need-based tuition assistance and offer a variety of payment plans. Families with a wide range of income levels apply for aid, but income is just one factor in the calculation of financial need.

FAQs

List of 10 items.

  • Are decisions about admission and financial aid made separately?

    Yes. The admission committee selects students for admission without knowledge of who may have applied for tuition assistance.
  • Do a significant number of girls qualify?

    Yes. More than twent-five percent of the student body receives aid. The school awards partial and full financial grants to deserving students.
  • Do families need to re-apply for financial aid each year?

    Yes. We are committed to continuing to support families who receive tuition assistance. However, awards are not renewed automatically each year. Families who have received assistance will be invited to apply for the next year. Those families may expect to receive a similar proportion of tuition assistance from year to year provided that the family’s and the school’s financial circumstances remain essentially the same. A significant change up or down in the financial profile may result in a change in the tuition assistance package.
  • Do only families at specific income levels qualify?

    Families with a wide range of income levels apply for aid. You can earn a significant income and still qualify for aid depending upon your overall circumstances. Winsor considers each family's financial situation on an individual basis.
  • How do families apply for aid?

    To confidentially inquire about tuition assistance, parents must apply for financial aid online. Winsor uses the tuition assistance calculation service by School and Student Services (SSS) to make financial assistance awards. This process begins early September, and the deadline is February 15th. We strongly advise you to begin working on the application as soon as possible. The school requires that both natural parents contribute to the cost of education for their child to the extent of their ability. If the student’s parents are divorced, separated, or were never married, both will be asked to privately complete their own financial aid application.
  • How do we learn more?

    If you have additional questions about your eligibility for tuition assistance or about the Winsor application for aid, please email or call our office at 617.735.9503, and we would be happy to assist you.
  • How much assistance is available?

    Winsor currently awards over $4.8 million a year through its tuition assistance program. Individual awards range from $2,000 to full tuition.
  • If my daughter enrolls and does not receive tuition assistance, can we apply for aid in the future?

    Yes, you may apply for aid each year. However, you must show that your family's financial situation has changed significantly in order to be considered for assistance in subsequent years.
  • What is included in the tuition charge?

    The tuition charge includes a daily lunch and snack, the after-school program, and educational retreats and field trips.
  • When are families informed of decisions?

    Decisions regarding both admission and tuition assistance are sent out together, provided all documentation is completed by the deadline.
