Financial Aid

The Woodward School remains committed to out Founders' intent to make an excellent college preparatory education available to as many qualified girls as possible.  Woodward does not consider a family's financial situation for admission.

Financial Aid Application

  • The financial aid application deadline is February 15th. Students applying after this date should contact the admissions office prior to completing the application to ensure availability of funds.
  • The Woodward School uses the School and Student Services (SSS) system to determine a family's financial need. Need based aid is calculated by assessing each family's income and expense information and factors, including family size, tuition expenses for other children, assets, liabilities and cost of living.
  • Please visit to complete or update the Parents' Financial Statement (PSS) and use the Woodward School code, 8312. The SSS Helpline is 1-800-344-8328.
  • For parents who are separated, divorced or were never married, Woodward requires that each parent file a PFS along with additional tax documentation. Parents can be assured that all financial information received from one parent will not be shared with the other.

Quincy Adams Scholarship

The Quincy Adams Scholarship is awarded to students who enroll at Woodward and reside in Quincy, Massachusetts in honor of President Adams and the Adams family. Applicants must provide proof of Quincy residency at the time of their application for each school year. There is no fee to apply for this scholarship.

Other Scholarships

The Woodward School awards scholarships to students who are eligible for financial aid. Individual awards range in value, depending on the student's financial need and other criteria.  The Scholarship Awards are funded by generous gifts of Woodward benefactors. Without this support from alumnae and friends of the School, Woodward would not be able to continue to meet the full financial need of all of our aid applicants. Named Woodward scholarships are given to students who are eligible for financial assistance and who meet the additional selection preferences specific by donors.  Students apply for Woodward scholarships by completing the student application for need-based financial aid.
