Affording Willow

For most Willow families, independent education is a significant financial commitment, but also a worthwhile investment in their child’s future. We strive to make The Willow School accessible to qualified applicants and are committed to enrolling students from the broadest range of backgrounds, experiences, and heritages because it greatly enriches the lives and learning of every student.

Financial aid is need-based and eligible families are awarded assistance that does not have to be repaid. Candidates for admissions are evaluated on their potential to thrive at Willow, hence, admissions and financial aid decisions are made independent of each other.

Director of Enrollment Management Lisa VanderVeen is here to help! Contact her at (908) 470-9500, ext. 1100 or via email.
