Financial Aid


Financial Aid/FLEX Tuition

This year the Board has revamped the entire tuition schedule and plan for grades Kindergarten through Grade 6. The new tuition plan is called FLEX Tuition, and it is utilized by other independent schools across the country. The plan establishes a range within which each family could pay for each child, taking into consideration the financial realities of the Shore and working to enable children to attend Broadwater who may not have been able to consider it otherwise. Families with students in Grades 7 through 12 may apply for financial aid.

What is Flex Tuition?

Families pay tuition that is affordable for their economic profile

Flex tuition makes a Broadwater education accessible to families from a wide range of economic circumstances

Flex tuition supports the school’s commitment to economic diversity

Why are we doing it?

Access/affordability
We offer this in order to support Broadwater’s mission to support the entire Eastern Shore community, and this is our way of providing access to a top-level education. We appreciate that a Broadwater education may be a challenging choice for the families of many outstanding students.

Economic diversity
Economic diversity enriches the educational opportunity for all families, and participation of a wide range of families is critical to the health of the school; it will enable Broadwater to extend allocation to families with mid-level effective income without disadvantage to the lower income ranges
