Financial Aid

Annie Wright Schools make a strong commitment to proven need-based financial aid in order to attract and support students who otherwise may not be able to enjoy the benefits of an Annie Wright education. 

Need-based financial aid packages are intended to supplement a family's financial commitment to their child's education. It is important to note that Annie Wright does not offer full tuition scholarships. 

Financial aid awards are based on demonstrated need. The difference between what a family can reasonably be expected to pay and the cost of tuition constitutes the family's demonstrated need. To demonstrate need, a family must complete an online financial aid application through TADS (please click here to start your application).

Once a financial aid application has been submitted and processed, TADS will send a report to Annie Wright Schools.  Financial aid reports are then reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee.   
Non-Discrimination Belief: The Board of Trustees of Annie Wright Schools remains firmly committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all student applicants. Annie Wright Schools shall recruit, admit, and teach students without regard to race, color, creed, sex, religion, age, national origin, sexual orientation, political ideology, or any other basis prohibited by law.
