Affording The Willows

A Willows education offers a lifelong return on today's investment in your child’s future.

Since our founding in 1994, a core value of The Willows has been offering a Willows education to as many qualified students as possible. We are dedicated to enrolling students from throughout the Los Angeles area and committed to working with families from all walks of life. Inclusivity and socio-economic diversity are paramount at The Willows and enrich all our community. 

Tuition Assistance   Our tuition assistance program is designed to meet a family's unique financial situation. We are aware that the cost of an independent school education may not be feasible for every family's budget and strive to help as many families as possible.

Please do not wait to decide whether to apply for tuition assistance after your child is accepted. Financial applications must accompany a child's application, and in no way affects the admission's decision. Families who do not apply for aid at the same time as the original admission application will not be eligible for aid consideration later, unless they demonstrate major, post-admission reversals and satisfy additional criteria. Visit the FAQ section of our Admissions pages to see the specific requirements for our Tuition Assistance program.
Payment Plans   We offer a variety of tuition payment plans and invite you to explore all your options.
