Tuition and Financial Aid
Financial Assistance for a Hewitt Education
The Hewitt School recognizes the financial investment families make in an independent school education and makes every effort to have a comprehensive fee, including tuition, books, and food services. The school’s need-based financial aid program provides support to approximately 20 percent of the student body, and includes grants ranging from partial to almost full tuition.
Comprehensive Fee 2017-2018
Kindergarten – Grade 12: $48,900
Financial Aid Program
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 families think about applying for financial aid, we encourage them to carefully evaluate their 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.
Tuition Payment Portal
Current Hewitt families can make their tuition payments online using our tuition payment portal.
