Financial Aid

Westminster is committed to providing bright, motivated, curious students with an unparalleled education regardless of their ability to pay. More than $5 million is awarded each year to families with demonstrated need.

Families must apply annually for financial aid directly through The School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) website.

Current Westminster families should refer to the Financial Aid resource board on Wildcat Web. New Westminster families may apply for financial aid until February 2, 2018.

Applying for Financial Aid

Step 1: Notify the School

Any parent interested in applying for financial aid should indicate this on their online application. Our admissions application process is need-blind, therefore the Admissions Committee will never know who is applying for or is in need of financial aid to attend Westminster.

As you complete the family information portion of the online application, answer "yes" to the question, "Do you plan to apply for financial aid?"

Step 2: Collect Required Documents

A list of all required documents required by SSS can be found in the 2018-19 Parent Guide to Financial Aid. All documents must be uploaded to the SSS site along with your completed application.

Please note that the Admissions Office is unable to accept any financial aid documents directly. All required documents should be uploaded directly to the SSS website. The Admissions Office cannot fax or upload on behalf of the applicant.

Step 3: Apply for Financial Aid Online

Please read the 2018-19 Parent Guide to Financial Aid prior to submitting your application.

Step 4: Read our FAQ's

FAQ's About Financial Aid

Should my family apply for financial aid?

Financial aid can bridge the gap for a family with limited income. We encourage families with financial questions to pursue the process rather than make an assumption that might prevent a qualified student from receiving a Westminster education.

How many students receive financial aid?

Approximately 15% of our students in grades pre-first through twelfth grades qualify for financial aid.

Does Westminster offer scholarships?

As a member of and in accordance with the guidelines outlined by the Georgia High School Association (GHSA), Westminster does not provide merit-based scholarships to incoming students.

Will my award automatically renew the next year?

No. Each family reapplies for financial aid each year. The school makes every effort to ensure the level of aid from year-to-year does not change if the family’s financial circumstance does not significantly change.

How will my child's experience be different if we accept an award?

Financial aid information is confidential and is not shared. To ensure the best possible experience for all families, recipients also are required to keep financial aid awards confidential.

What if I am divorced or unmarried?

Westminster believes that a family’s contribution to education is based on the family’s ability to pay rather than each parent’s willingness to pay. In keeping with the NAIS Principles of Good Practice for Financial Aid, the School considers tuition the responsibility of both parents. Accordingly, both parents must complete a Financial Aid application and provide required documents. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis depending on several factors. For students in the Admissions process, email financialaid@westminster.net if you would like to find out if you qualify for such an exception. In cases where applications are completed by non-married parents, information is kept separate and confidential and will never be shared by the School with the other parent.
