Financial Aid & FAQs
Westminster School is committed to helping families afford an independent school education.
Each year approximately 15% of our families receive some form of need-based financial assistance. Financial aid awards are based on the guidelines of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), an organization associated with the National Association of Independent Schools. Aid is applied for and awarded annually. Early financial aid application is encouraged. The final decision regarding financial aid awards is made by the school’s Financial Aid Committee. Requests for financial aid have no effect on admission to Westminster School.
For more financial aid information, please contact Debby Graham, director of finance and financial aid, at (405) 524-0631, ext. 122 or by email.
