Financial Aid/Georgia GOAL
The Westfield School offers a Financial Aid Program which provides need based financial assistance. The program is intended to assist those families who desire a Westfield education but might have difficulty with tuition costs. Westfield is also a participant in the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program which provides tuition assistance on a needs basis to students who are enrolling in Pre-K, Kindergarten, or First Grade, or who are transferring from a Georgia public school. Students new to Westfield may apply for financial aid after they submitted an application for admission to the school. No full tuition aid is available. All information, including the names of families seeking and receiving assistance, is kept strictly confidential. Financial aid requests should be made to Ms. Kris Taylor, Chief Financial Officer, email@example.com.
Decisions on the financial aid applications (including Georgia GOAL) are made following the submission of a Parents’ Financial Statement (which includes a copy of your most recent IRS 1040, W-2s, and application) to FACTS, and the subsequent report received by the school. Financial aid applications may be made following the student’s acceptance for admission to Westfield. In case of separation or divorce, both parents must complete a Parents’ Financial Statement and submit the appropriate tax information.
Financial aid awards are made based on demonstrated need and the availability of funds. Parents of all students who receive financial aid must apply for financial aid each year.
Tuition Refund Insurance
The Westfield School plans, budgets and contracts for services for the academic year in advance of student matriculation, therefore, the enrollment contract obligates families for the full amount of tuition and fees for the year, whether or not students are dismissed, withdraw or do not attend. Tuition Refund Insurance, through the services of A.W.G. Dewar Inc., is a service to families to assist them in meeting their contractual obligations to The Westfield School. The program insures fees (prepaid and due) in the event of separation from the school after actual enrollment has begun and the student has attended 14 consecutive calendar days of school.
Tuition Refund Insurance is required of new families and will be billed in three monthly installments. The annual premium is 3.1% of paid tuition. Any questions regarding the Tuition Refund Insurance Plan should be directed to Ms. Kris Taylor, CFO, at 478-987-0547 ext. 227 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
