General Information and Policies
The cost per student at WSG is approximately $15,000 per year. The Development Office works hard to seek funding from numerous foundations and generous individuals who provide scholarships for WSG students. All families must pay $25.00 per month towards this amount or $250.00 per academic year from September - June. For students in the year-round program, the total amount is $300.00. Families with multiple students in the school will pay according to the following sliding fee:
$40 per month
$45 per month
$50 per month
THEARC families contribute a $30 activities fee in August to help offset some Extended Day expenses. This fee is to be paid to your student’s advisor during the family re-enrollment meeting, prior to the first day of school.
In all cases, parents/guardians are expected to pay a monthly fee of $25.00, and to provide the complete school uniform. The monthly fee is due by the 5th of every month. A late fee of $5.00 will be assessed after the 5th, making the amount due $30.00.
During the school year, students may be asked to contribute toward the cost of some extracurricular activities such as field trips, educational and book supplies, and school celebrations. These costs will be made known through the weekly Communication folders.
Any exceptions to the above or requests for deferred payments must be made to the Head of School or Campus Administrator at the student's campus.
In all cases, please refer to the Prince George’s County Public School System for information on whether WSG will be open. WSG follows Prince George’s County weather decisions. However, if the situation presents that WSG is in session and Prince George’s County schools are not, we would then follow Elizabeth Seton High School. In this case, faculty, staff and students are not expected to report.
When there is a weather early dismissal, the Extended Day activities are cancelled. This is to be sure that students can get home before conditions worsen.
