If Wye River looks like the right school for you, but the cost makes you hesitate, please talk to us. Our thriving financial aid program was crafted to be a useful resource for a wide range of income levels. The process starts once a student has gone through the admissions process and has been accepted to the school.
We utilize a non-profit group called F.A.S.T. (Financial Aid for Schools Tuition), which assists families and schools in fairly determining the appropriate level of aid. Additionally, we also make Wye River affordable by offering flexible payment plan options including splitting annual payments into 10 months. We also work with families individually to set a payment schedule and plan that meets their needs.
Tuition covers a large portion of the costs associated with educating students at Wye River, but it does not cover all of them. Annual giving, foundation gifts, and endowment income help us bridge the gap. The support of our donors makes it possible for us to set reasonable tuition rates and also maintain a strong fund for financial aid. Click here to learn more about how to support our program.
