Any student who submits an application for admission, or any current student, is eligible to apply for financial aid. Although Woodlands tries to accommodate as many families as possible, we are not always able to meet all requests for such assistance. Requests for assistance do not affect admission decisions or a current student’s place in the school community.
Yes. Grants are awarded for one year, and families receiving financial aid must reapply each year if they wish to be considered. Grants may be renewed upon evidence of continuing need.
We recognize that each family’s situation is unique, and we welcome a discussion or additional documentation to clarify the financial picture. If an applicant’s parents are living separately, both custodial and non-custodial parents must complete the Parents’ Financial Statement and submit required documentation to the Office of Admission and Financial Aid.
The Financial Aid Committee expects that both parents will contribute to the education of their child.
Woodlands Academy considers the income and assets of any adult who plays a significant role in a student’s life. We therefore require all adults involved in the applicant’s life to provide financial information.
Each case is individual, and we recognize this. For example, Woodlands’ Financial Aid Committee will add the full-time income of a parent who is able but not currently working. Of course, if one parent is at home taking care of a pre-school-aged child, elderly parent, or an ill or disabled child, we give these situations careful consideration.
No. Woodlands’ Admission Committee does not know who is applying for financial aid. Admission decisions are independent of financial aid decisions.
