Affording Oakwood


An Oakwood education is a significant investment in your child’s future and one that can profoundly impact his or her life.  We realize that this invaluable opportunity carries significant costs and requires financial planning.  Families often need to make sacrifices and find creative ways to afford an independent school education.

Oakwood is committed to enrolling exceptional students in the Los Angeles area and to partnering with families who wish to make this type of commitment to education.

  • There are payment plans available if you wish to pay in one, two, or ten installments. We are now partnering with Smart Tuition for the processing and collection of tuition and fees for those families choosing the two-payment or ten-payment plan. By using Smart, you will have more payment options, including auto debit, online payment, pay by phone or mobile app, bank bill pay, payment by check, or credit card (convenience fees may apply).

  • There is financial aid available for families who qualify. We hope to partner with you to make an Oakwood education affordable. 16% of the student body receives over $3.5 million dollars in financial aid.

Should you feel that Oakwood School is a good match with your child and family, we hope you will consider our educational community regardless of your financial situation.  Please let us know how we can help.
