Variable Tuition is a needs-based program similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities. This program allows families to apply for reduced tuition that fits their family’s financial position. This makes a Watersprings School education affordable to many qualified students who could not otherwise join our school community.

Any family of a Kindergartener through 12th grade student may apply for Variable Tuition if they are concerned about affording the full tuition rate at Watersprings School. Watersprings School uses a 3rd party company to decide who qualifies for Variable Tuition. Many factors are used to determine the tuition amount a family is able to pay such as income, assets, unusual expenses, and the family size.

Variable Tuition applications that have been verified by FACTS will be reviewed on the 2nd Monday of every month.

No. Unfortunately, the school does not have the ability to offer Variable Tuition to every student who qualifies for both admission and Variable Tuition. A student may be admitted to the school but placed on a waiting list for Variable Tuition. It is recommended that families apply for Variable Tuition as early as possible.
