Along with our traditional boarding option, WNA additionally has a 5 Day boarding option that allows students to return home for the weekend. This flexible program lets WNA serve as a home away from home, giving students ample time to spend with their family and community, a benefit we believe to be imperative to our students.
While WNA encourages our students to develop independence through the traditional 7 day boarding school experience, we believe it is also crucial that our students have quality time and continuity with their families away from our campus. As a result, we ensure that students that decide to take advantage of the 5 day boarding option will not have a lesser WNA experience in any way. Students in the 5 day program will share all the benefits of our campus, such as full-time access to faculty and resources. Those who elect the 5 Day Boarding School Option are fully integrated into life at WNA and will thrive as positive and productive community members.
Students are allowed to switch between the two boarding options at any point during the school year.
Tuition for students who board 7 days is $54,705 per year while tuition for 5-day boarders is $41,200. Visit our financial aid page for more information.
5 day boarders may sign up to stay on selected weekends. WNA may not charge for one or two instances of 5 day boarders staying for weekends, but the school may assess fees after multiple weekends.
Any student can be a 5 day boarder as long as they have reliable transportation for pick-up every Friday evening by 6:00 p.m. and drop-off every Sunday evening by 7:00 p.m.
