Applewild School Offers Financial Assistance
Applewild School offers financial assistance to families interested in the quality kindergarten-grade eight education at the school in Fitchburg. Spots are still available for fall 2014. Earlier this year the school announced an Affordability Initiative, an aggressive program to keep Applewild School affordable to a wide range of families. The school, founded in 1957, serves families in central MA and southern NH and offers busing from many of the 30 communities where their students live.
Families often have questions or are unclear about how financial aid or scholarships work. Emily Bracchitta, Director of Admission and Financial Aid at Applewild, welcomes these questions and conversation about financial matters and what Applewild has to offer. Families who qualify for financial aid can receive aid based on their financial need, and the Affordability Initiative is designed to encompass middle class families who otherwise might be unable to consider an Applewild education.
In addition, the school offers academic merit scholarships: AppleCore Scholarships for qualified students entering grades four through seven; and an Early Childhood Scholarship for students entering grade two. Applewild strives to attract qualified students and their families who understand the school's philosophy and who practice the school's Core Values. Tours are available daily by calling the Admission Office at 978-342-6053 x110 or emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org. On the first Thursday of each month at 9 a.m., interested parents can come to "Take A Look", an opportunity to see teachers and students in action. Next "Take A Look" date is June 5.
