Financial Aid

Williston aims to enroll students from various backgrounds within the United States and from abroad. Financial aid provides tuition assistance for qualified applicants to bridge the gap between tuition and what they are able to afford. Financial aid supplements family resources and awards are made to a wide range of family incomes with both significant and modest awards provided to Williston families each year.

Grants are awarded on a year-by-year basis at the discretion of the Financial Aid Committee. These grants are based on the family need, strength of the student’s application, and financial aid resources. While we are fortunate to be able to offer $6.2 million in financial aid to our student body, we are unable to accept all capable students who qualify for financial aid and candidates may be placed on the school's waiting list. It is important to note that returning students who do not apply for or receive financial aid their first year are unlikely to receive aid in the following years.

Williston partners with School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS to process financial aid applications. Please visit the parent portal of SSS to begin your Parent's Financial Statement (PFS) and upload your supporting tax documents. Your financial aid application is complete after you have filled out the PFS and uploaded your supporting documents. Please note that all documents must be uploaded directly to your PFS online. Williston’s school code for SSS is 8230.

For new families, financial aid applications should be completed by February 1, 2018.

For returning families, financial aid applications should be completed by February 15, 2018.

More information regarding appropriate tax documentation can be found in the Financial Aid Application Guidelines. Williston subscribes to the principles of the School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS).
