Financial Aid Information
Wardlaw + Hartridge maintains a century-old commitment to providing educational opportunities to students. We understand that financing an independent school education is a significant investment and believe our Mission Statement and Core Values affirm the need for a socio-economically diverse community.
We have developed a variety of approaches to help families afford our outstanding education.
We will work with families through TADS and require that they apply annually to determine eligibility.
At Wardlaw + Hartridge financial assistance is available for students in Grades K - 12 with a maxium award of fifty percent for students in Grades K through five.
We urge you to complete the financial aid process expeditiously. The Financial Aid Committee will not be able to consider your application until all of your documentation, including your 2016 tax return, has been submitted. Please let us know if you need assistance.
Financial aid is offered only after determining that the resources of the family are insufficient to meet the student's educational expenses. In order for your financial aid application to be complete and your grant determined, please submit all 2016 tax documentation, including your 2016 W2 and 1040. Families must submit a financial aid application annually.
Please call the Admission Office with additional questions or concerns about tuition or tuition assistance, at (908) 754-1882 Ext. 155.
Financial need is different for everyone. Tuition assistance at Wardlaw-Hartridge is need based, that is why we ask you to apply to TADS to see if you qualify. Once you submit all of your tax and other supporting documents to TADS, they will assess your financial obligations and need for tuition assistance. When their assessment is complete, they will contact our Director of Financial Aid.
Each parent’s financial information is kept confidential. Failing to make sure that your child’s tuition assistance file is complete in this respect can affect the amount of the grant offered. Please contact the Admissions Office for guidance in handling unusual circumstances.
In Lower School, the maximum tuition assistance is 50% of the tuition. In Middle and Upper School, the percentage is determined after a thorough assessment of the family’s need.
