Our school understands the difficulties parents are facing during these tough economic times. We are aware of the financial sacrifices many of our families make in order to pay for tuition and related fees and we are more than happy to work with you in addressing your concerns about the financial investment involved in enrolling your child at Wichita Friends School.
In keeping with Quaker tenets, Wichita Friends School wishes to enroll students of all economic backgrounds. Choosing a Wichita Friends School education is an investment in the life of your child.
Financial aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and is determined by financial need and the availability of funds for specific programs. Financial need analysis for each family is conducted by an outside company, TADS.
Families applying for financial aid for the 2013-2014 school year will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to TADS for priority consideration by April 1, 2013. Applications received after the priority deadline will be reviewed as long as funds remain available.
Applicants can apply online. (NOTE: If you are a new family considering Wichita Friends School, you need to complete a WFS Enrollment Application; upon acceptance into our program, you will then complete the TADS application before you will be evaluated for financial assistance.)
The following information is required in order for TADS to process your application:
- Completed online application.
- Payment of the application fee to TADS.
- Copies of your 2012 tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.*
- Copies of your 2012 W-2 form for both you and your spouse.
- Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANF.
*If you plan to file your taxes after the WFS priority deadline of April 1, please contact the admissions office to request accommodations. Your file will not be reviewed without supporting tax documentation.
If you have questions or concerns about the financial aid application process, you may speak with our Financial Manager, Gracie Rodriguez (729-0303).
