The Flexible Tuition program ensures access and socioeconomic diversity at LWHS.
Thanks to its 125 year history of being accessible to students from all walks of life, including 77 years of being tuition free, Lick-Wilmerding High School enjoys the legacy, the resources, and the strategic resolve to push the limits on what it can mean to be a truly accessible independent school.

Full tuition for the 2022-2023 school year is $54,800. Today, 28 percent of LWHS’ operating budget is devoted to Flexible Tuition, 33% of our students are enrolled through the school’s Flexible Tuition Program. 

One thing we have learned is that language of discourse really matters—especially when talking about accessibility. Rather than use the term "financial aid", LWHS has chosen to use "Flexible Tuition" for more than three decades. The definition of Flexible Tuition is: the amount of tuition paid by LWHS families who participate in the Flexible Tuition Program
