Lawrence Woodmere Academy offers financial aid to qualifying families with students entering Kindergarten through Grade 12.  Our financial aid program is need-based, and grants are awarded to families of qualified admission candidates who demonstrate financial need.

Admissions decisions are separate from requests for financial aid. Any financial aid requests do not have a bearing on whether or not a student can matriculate at LWA.
