Affording The Oaks
The founders of The Oaks School regarded socio-economic diversity as a core educational value and we remain committed to providing a range of financial aid to families seeking an independent school education. Keeping The Oaks accessible to a wide cross section of students and families enriches the learning and living environment for all Oaks' students. We are able to offer families in need a variety of tuition assistance plans. Awards ranging from a few thousand dollars to almost full tuition.
The Char Sadler Financial Aid Endowment has been established to begin growing an on-going funding source for financial aid. The Endowment provides a strong foundation to support our goal of keeping our community accessible for years to come.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
The Oaks School processes online financial aid applications through FAST (Financial Aid For School Tuition), a third-party service that offers families a secure online application system. Information that is entered into FAST is shared confidentially with The Oaks financial aid committee.
Completing an application for financial aid can be a time-consuming process. We encourage you to start early, take a look at the FAST users guide and worksheet and compile your financial statements before starting the online application.

The Board of Trustees wants all families to be aware that tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a student at The Oaks. If it were not for contributions to The Oaks Fund and other non-tuition income, tuition and fees would be significantly higher. Therefore, your continued support of the school's fundraising efforts is greatly appreciated.
