Press release submitted by Applewild School
Applewild School has reaffirmed its commitment to the earliest of learners by reducing tuition for students in kindergarten through second grade for the 2018/2019 school year. Earlier this year, the Board of Trustees decided to lower tuitions at these levels to help address the financial challenges that many families face when choosing an independent school education.
“For over 60 years Applewild has worked to be a competitively priced regional option for independent school education. This decision continues that commitment to the earliest of learners and their families.” said Chris Williamson, Interim Head of School.
In addition to this tuition reduction, Applewild has recently announced new scholarship opportunities for incoming students. These scholarships range from academic merit based opportunities, specific regional offerings as well as scholarships for local Fitchburg students.
The newly established Jennifer Martin Cloutier ’83 Scholarship seeks to assist a student entering the sixth, seventh or eighth grade with demonstrated financial need. The recipient will be a high achiever in English language arts and possess strong writing skills.
AppleCore Scholarships are available to prospective students entering grades 4 through 7. Scholarships are offered to students from Middlesex County, Worcester County and New Hampshire. AppleCore Scholarships range from 90 percent of tuition to an award of $1,000 and include an additional element to the application process.
The C.T. Crocker Scholarship, established in 1968, is awarded to a Fitchburg student applying for sixth grade who has demonstrated outstanding ability and promise. The recipient of this scholarship will receive an award of 95 percent tuition continuing through the student’s eighth grade year, as long as the student’s academic record and general performance remain at a satisfactory level and continued financial need is demonstrated.
