It's a Great Time to be at AWHS!

Tuition for the 2021-2022 school year is $16,500. In the Middle School Program, Grades 7 & 8, each student receives an AWHS Grant of $2,500, reducing tuition to $14,000 for our Middle School students. Tuition for the 2022-2023 school year will be set in January of 2022.

We are committed to providing an affordable Archbishop Williams education to every qualified student. Last year, 54% of all AWHS families received tuition assistance.

Additionally, the cost of educating each student at AWHS is actually $2,000 more than the tuition charged to our families. Philanthropy - the generosity of our alumni and families through fundraising efforts- makes up the difference.

We believe that AWHS offers an unparalleled educational experience for an exceptional value, especially when compared to the average tuition at Boston-area private schools, which is over $45,000 per year.
