Paying for a Wellington education.


 

The value of a Wellington education can’t be underestimated. The combination of small class sizes, opportunities for every child to be involved in enrichment and extracurricular activities, and individual attention from renowned teachers and coaches provide the optimal environment for learning.

We offer four different payment plans, as well as financial aid for students entering prekindergarten through grade 12 and merit scholarships for students entering grades 5 through 9, to help fund your child’s Wellington education. We think you’ll agree that an excellent educational foundation is priceless when it comes to preparing your student for success in life.
