Tuition and Tuition Assistance
As Maryland’s first all-girls’ boarding school, we have a long history of forging opportunities for young women.
We recognize the decision to send your daughter to Oldfields is a significant investment in her future. For over 150 years, our School has believed in the power of young women and been committed to providing the Oldfields Experience to as many students as possible. Together, we can provide your daughter with this life-changing opportunity.
Oldfields School’s tuition is a comprehensive fee that includes the cost of most activities, athletics, and most academic support outside of ASP. Both boarding and day students benefit from a wide variety of after school and weekend activities that extend their learning far beyond the classroom.
We understand that with the developing situation with COVID-19, things may feel uncertain for you and your family, and we want to make sure you have all the information you need. Join Kathleen Wenck, Associate Director of Admission and Financial Aid, for a conversation regarding all things tuition assistance. Your conversation will be family-focused, and can include, but is not limited to: an overview of Oldfields School’s tuition assistance program, understanding the tuition assistance application, reviewing the additional costs included in sending your daughter to an independent school, and sustaining your family contribution during your daughter's time at Oldfields. Tuition Assistance Tuesday webinars will be hosted by appointment each Tuesday.

While the primary responsibility for financing a student's education rests with the family, a strong tuition financial assistance program supports Oldfields commitment to a qualified, motivated, and diverse student body. We encourage students to apply irrespective of financial need. In the 2019-2020 school year $1.4 million dollars of financial aid was granted. Nearly 45% of our families receive some form of financial assistance.
To assist families in meeting the cost of an Oldfields School education, we offer need-based assistance, merit awards, and payment plans. For many families, a small tuition assistance grant enables the opportunity for an Oldfields education. If you feel your daughter would benefit from the unique educational experience that we offer, please carefully review the financial assistance options, policies, and guidelines outlined below before you begin the application process.
