Flexible Tuition

Committed to Making a WCFS Education

Financially Accessible for Families

West Chester Friends School has a strong commitment to providing flexible tuition, and the socioeconomically diverse student body this practice creates. We believe that a learning community comprised of students from a range of backgrounds is enriched and strengthened, and is an ideal setting for all.  In 2018-2019, over half of WCFS students receive flexible tuition totaling $1.4 million. Providing a WCFS education that is accessible to families of all income levels is in keeping with and guided by our Mission and our Vision. West Chester Friends School abides by the National Association of Independent Schools Principles of Good Practice.
