Affording Millwood

To assist families, we offer a number of affordability programs including monthly payment plans and tuition insurance. Tuition assistance may also be available for accepted students based on their level of need as assessed by FAST for financial aid.

Tuition Assistance Application Process
  • Beginning February 1, 2018, current families and new families may apply online for tuition assistance for the 2018-2019 school year.
  • The tuition assistance application should be completed by current families online no later than March 28, 2018, and for new families by May 1, 2018, but keep in mind this is a first come first serve basis.  The cost is $43 payable once the application is complete.
  • Applicants will only be considered for tuition assistance after acceptance to Millwood School. Families are encouraged to begin the tuition assistance application process at the same time they begin the Millwood School admission process. This will ensure that new families meet the May 1, 2018 deadline.
  • Tax documentation must be received by FAST by May 1, 2018 for verification.
  • Millwood School reserves the right to alter a tuition assistance award if the tax documents submitted in April do not substantiate the FAST application.

Three Payment Plans

In addition to the option of paying tuition in full each July, Millwood also offers families a three-semester payment plan and a ten-month payment plan through FACTS©Tuition Management. This provides families with more opportunities to manage their payments. New accounts must select method of payment (bank draft or credit card, (Discover, American Express or MasterCard)) and payment date when signing in at FACTS©website.

Tuition Refund Insurance (Optional)
Millwood offers a plan that allows parents to purchase tuition insurance for a nominal fee. If, for any reason, a student withdraws from Millwood during the course of the academic year, both parents and the school would be assured the continuation of tuition payments.

Local Banks
Some families choose to explore loan opportunities through their local bank.

Family Support
Many families receive invaluable support from grandparents who are pleased to be able to invest in their grandchildren's future. Grandparents are warmly invited to tour the school and be part of the admissions process. After enrollment, vested family members are always welcome at Millwood, and the Millwood Grandparents' Group arranges regular coffees and events.

Credit Card
Parents may pay tuition with American Express, Discover, or MasterCard.
