Oakwood School provides a multisensory educational program in which students with learning differences are guided to achieve their unique academic and social potential in a nurturing community environment

Tuition Assistance

Oakwood School is committed to making an Oakwood education accessible to as many students as possible.

We understand and appreciate the financial commitment that families undertake in deciding to send their children to a highly specialized school such as Oakwood. Therefore, as funds are available, we are committed to offering needs-based tuition assistance to students who will benefit from Oakwood’s program and whose families require financial assistance.

Oakwood’s Financial Aid Committee awards grants based upon careful review of each family’s Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) Application and all supporting documentation. As a result, Tuition Assistance awards reflect each family’s unique circumstances. The awards vary in size and are made for only one year at a time. All financial information provided by families is kept strictly confidential.

Admissions decisions and tuition assistance decisions are made independently. All prospective families should submit their Admissions Application to the Admissions Department. Those families in need of financial aid should submit their Tuition Assistance Application online. The Tuition Assistance Application may be submitted at the same time or after the Admissions Application.


In addition to the following guidelines, please take a moment to review the Tuition Assistance Policies & Procedures before you submit your application.
