Academic and Social Support Fee Schedule

Payment Options Available

FRIENDS SCHOOL HAVERFORD offers three payment plans:

Full Payment

For families who pay the full amount on or before August 1, the School gives a 1% discount on the tuition due less the enrollment deposit. For Grade 5 through 8 students, please add the Middle School team-building trip costs to your initial payment.

For those families who pay the tuition in two installments, the payments are sixty percent of the tuition due on August 1st and the remaining balance on January 15. For Grade 5 through 8 students, please add the Middle School team-building trip costs to your initial payment.

Ten or Twelve Month Payment Plan

A 10 to 12-month payment plan may be arranged through FACTS Management Systems. Payments begin in April for the 12-month plan, May for the 11-month plan and June for the 10-month plan.

Premiums for Tuition Refund Plan (optional)

In the event your child needs to leave School before the end of the year, we offer a tuition refund plan administered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. The cost of this insurance is 2.4% of the total tuition charge. Payment for the tuition refund plan should be included with your initial payment to the School. See the tuition refund plan brochure and/or contact the Director of Finance & Operations for more details.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for students with a demonstrated need entering first through eighth grade. All financial aid is need-based. Friends School Haverford uses the services of the School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS to calculate a family’s need for financial aid. 

 

Financial aid forms are mailed to current families in December. New students may apply after they have been accepted and return their enrollment contract. 

 

While the availability of school resources, the number of qualified applicants, and overall budgetary constraints influence financial assistance decisions, Friends School Haverford is committed to helping as many applicants as possible. In an effort to make the process fair to all, the school considers the following when making award decisions:

 

1. The primary responsibility for financing a student’s education rests with the family.

2. Both parents are expected to contribute to tuition regardless of being in the same household.

3. In the case of divorce, separation or unmarried parents, Friends School Haverford requires both parents to submit their financial information.

4. Friends School Haverford believes a family should invest in their child’s education before elective expenses.

5. Both parents are expected to volunteer time to and participate in school fundraiser events.

6. Families are expected to keep their children at Friends School Haverford for the entire program through grade 8.
