The Family's Financial Commitment
Woodlynde's Financial Aid grants are intended to support those enrolled families that have demonstrated need and who have already accessed other outside sources of income and addressed expense savings. Those income sources include grandparents, other family members, employment of all able-bodied parents, other potential scholarship programs, or a settlement from a school district. Non-educational lifestyle expenses that can also be addressed prior to applying for Financial Aid include ownership of second homes, luxury automobiles, or memberships in private dues-paying clubs. These are the kinds of considerations families should make before applying for Financial Aid. While Woodlynde is committed to supporting demonstrated need to the extent possible, we also believe that families must bear some of the sacrificial burden in this partnership.
