Tuition and Financial Aid

Financial Assistance for a Hewitt Education

We appreciate the financial investment families make in an independent school education. Our financial aid program reflects Hewitt’s strong commitment to enrolling students who show both intellectual and ethical promise, regardless of their economic situation. We make every effort to offer a comprehensive, need-based financial aid program that enables Hewitt to enroll students from across the socioeconomic spectrum. 

In 2020-2021, our financial aid program supported 30 percent of the student body, with awards totalling $5.4 million in financial assistance to families representing a wide range of income levels. Our average financial aid award was approximately $37,000.

2021-2022 Tuition: $55,450 (grades K-12)

Applying for Financial Aid

Our financial aid program makes grants available to students whose families demonstrate financial need. For the purposes of establishing financial need, Hewitt expects that both parents (and all legal guardians) will contribute to their daughter’s education. In the case of divorced or separated parents, both parents must complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) and submit all the required documentation to School and Student Services (SSS). Financial information is required from both custodial and non-custodial parents. In certain circumstances, (for example, a widowed parent) a sole parent or guardian can complete a Second Parent Financial Information Waiver Request.

As you think about applying for financial aid, we encourage you to carefully evaluate your ability to pay tuition costs. Students who initially enroll at Hewitt without financial assistance will be considered for aid only if they have diminished family resources due to an unexpected change in their financial circumstances.

If families think they will need financial aid, they should apply for consideration during the admission process. We will make every effort to accommodate each family’s situation.
