Tuition and Financial Aid

Investing in Your Child’s Future

Affording a Webb education requires careful financial planning. Please be sure to contact the Admissions Office to inquire about financial aid, loan opportunities and payment plan options. Affording a boarding school or day school education does require some sacrifices, but families may be surprised to learn that they may qualify for a financial aid award. Each family situation is unique, so we encourage you to contact our office at 931-389-6003 to learn more. 

Applying for Financial Aid

Webb, like many independent schools around the country, uses the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) to determine affordability. SSS will start accepting applications on November 1, 2015. We strongly suggest that you apply for financial aid by our priority deadline of February 15, 2016. Please apply online at Once your register your online account, you will be able to save your application as you progress through it. There is a non-refundable fee of $39 and online applications are usually processed within 72 hours. In addition, families will be required to submit a copy of their 2015 1040 tax return W-2 statements as well as any other schedules filed.

How to Apply for Financial Aid

Financial Aid Frequently Asked Questions  

Making a Financial Aid Award

Your Parent Financial Statement (PFS) is verified with your tax return and then, after your child has been accepted, reviewed by the financial aid committee. The committee will also consider the potential for income to be earned by a non-working parent. The decision for an award is based on the affordability determined by your PFS and the funds available in our budget.

It is very important to note that applying for financial aid has no bearing upon the Admissions Committee’s deliberation and assessment of student’s potential as a Webb student. Decisions regarding admission to Webb and eligibility for financial aid are made independently of each other.  

All financial information is kept confidential and must be on file before our office can consider a financial award. Financial aid forms must be re-submitted each year and awards will be reevaluated on an annual basis. If you have any questions or need assistance with your forms, please contact our office at 931-389-6003.
