Tuition & Affordability

Front of the school on a sunny day

Whitfield is committed to maintaining an economically diverse community—with family incomes of all levels represented.  Because of this commitment, we generously offer merit and character scholarships to deserving students, and financial aid for families who demonstrate need. We are also committed to building a community that is invested in the long-term success of our school and of our students—the future leaders of our community, our country, our world.


Need-Based Financial Aid

Whitfield offers aid awards to families who qualify based on their SSS (School & Student Services) application. Once applications are complete they are reviewed by a Financial Aid Committee.  Over 30% of Whitfield families receive some financial aid; all families also pay some tuition. While a small number of Merit and Character Scholarships are awarded to exceptional students, all other aid is need-based. Click the link below to complete an SSS application.

Return on Your Investment
79% of the Class of 2021 (77 students) earned merit, athletic and leadership scholarships totaling over $3,900,000 for their freshman year of college alone. Investing in secondary education can have a hard return. Whitfield’s expert college counseling team provides a student-centered, highly personalized approach that empowers students to reach their top choice school in a low-stress way.
Finding Success in College
In addition to earning college scholarships, we prepare students to be successful in college. Just as we prepare students academically, we help students build the confidence and comfort to work directly with professors, to seek clarification and additional support as they need it, to develop time-management and organizational skills; to be advocates of their own learning.
Finding Success in the Workplace
In addition to success in the classroom, the Whitfield experience prepares students to respectfully engage in civil discourse, an expectation of colleges and employers. Our international program and commitment to diversity lead to strong bonds among students of vastly different backgrounds. A diverse student body broadens the perspectives and experiences shared in class discussions and prepares Whitfield students for the global realities they will face in college and beyond.
