Tuition & Financial Assistance
Education is an investment in the future – your child’s future.
We understand and appreciate that many of our families had never imagined their child would require an independent school education, especially one as highly specialized as Oakwood. We are committed to making an Oakwood education accessible to as many students as possible by offering financial aid and payment options. If you are interested in Oakwood as an option for your child, we encourage you to contact our Admissions Office with any questions you may have.
My son was talking to a friend from his former school and I overheard him say “my school is AWESOME!” I had never heard him use the words 'school' and 'awesome' in the same sentence before. – an Oakwood Parent

Oakwood’s Financial Aid Committee awards grants based upon careful review of each family’s FACTS Assessment 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 through the FACTS Assessment. The Tuition Assistance Application may be submitted at the same time or after the Admissions Application.

FINANCING your child's education
Tax Deduction - The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may allow deductions for some of the services provided to children diagnosed as learning disabled. Check with your tax attorney or accountant about these deductions.
Virginia529 Saving Plan - Changes to the Internal Revenue Code as part of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act may allow you to pay a portion of your child’s tuition using money from a Virginia529 Saving Plan.

Employer Benefit Program - There are private companies, corporations, and national and international agencies with benefit plans that help pay for independent or special-needs education and services for children of qualifying employees. Check to see if your employer’s human resources office has such a plan.
