Flexible Tuition

Wildwood School seeks to sustain a school community that reflects greater Los Angeles, including our city’s socioeconomic diversity. Dedicating significant resources to the school's flexible tuition budget, our Board of Trustees is committed to providing flexible tuition to as many qualified families as possible. For families exploring our school, it’s important to know that Wildwood is an affirming community inclusive of a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds.

Flexible tuition applications for prospective students are submitted during the admission application process. Families of continuing students file an application annually in January.

To facilitate a smooth experience for families, Wildwood uses Smart Aid, a third-party service, for its flexible tuition analysis. Smart Aid offers families a secure online application system. Information that is entered into Smart Aid is shared confidentially with Wildwood’s Flexible Tuition Committee. All information regarding who receives flexible tuition is also confidential.

How to Apply for Flexible Tuition

  • Check the appropriate box on Wildwood’s application that says "Do you plan to apply for flexible tuition?"
  • Once your student’s online application is submitted, you may begin the Smart Aid application by clicking on the icon found under Flexible Tuition Forms and Deadlines.
  • If you have questions about the flexible tuition process, please contact Alberto Duarte in the business office at (310) 806-4531 or aduarte@wildwood.org.

Wildwood School does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, creed, disability, gender, marital status, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, or sexual orientation. This policy applies to all areas of the school, including admission, educational policies, flexible tuition, and other school administered programs.
