A Westminster education is a significant financial investment, but one that reaps immeasurable lifetime benefits. Westminster is committed to making it financially possible for each student who is admitted to live, study and compete at one of the nation’s leading boarding schools. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents and friends, Westminster is able to provide financial aid to over one-third of enrolled students.
We encourage any family who feels they may need financial assistance to apply for financial aid. Intended as a supplement to family resources, financial aid awards are made not only to families whose ability to pay school costs is extremely limited, but also to those who may need only a minor subsidy to meet tuition requirements.
Westminster’s financial aid program is need-based and does not include merit, athletic or academic scholarships. Separately, Westminster is one of six boarding schools selected by the Shelby Cullom Davis Charitable Fund to award scholarships to a small number of students who exhibit outstanding leadership potential and come from places around the world not typically represented in the student body.
Westminster School reaffirms its long-standing nondiscriminatory policy and admits students of any race, religion, sexual orientation or national origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at Westminster. Westminster does not discriminate in its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, or athletic and other school-administered programs.
