How to Apply for Tuition Assistance

Families applying for tuition assistance at The Willow School must apply through TADS, which provides the school with the financial data, formulas, and recommendations needed to make the most equitable decisions possible.  The school makes tuition assistance awards utilizing national standards in a secure and confidential process.





We use a third party service to provide a greater level of objectivity and impartiality, and ability to match our data and decisions to national standards. Examination of family financial conditions is a secure and confidential process.  This process brings confidence and equity to both the school and each family applying for tuition assistance.
