We never want the cost of tuition to stand in the way of a child attending Mary Meyer School. We have long offered a financial aid program so that a Mary Meyer education can be available to all children, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
The annual tuition for the 2016-17 school year is $10,490 per child. Tuition for the 2017-18 school year will be set later this winter.
Financial aid is an inherent part of the school’s philosophy and a way to maintain the socio-economic diversity of the student body. Financial aid is based on the need of the family and is offered without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation or ethnic origin. Applying for financial aid does not influence the decision to admit a child to the school.
In order to be considered for financial aid at Mary Meyer, families must complete the following steps of the financial aid process. Mary Meyer offers financial assistance to students on a need basis. FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, a third party company, assists Mary Meyer in making financial aid decisions. Through their analysis, the organization provides a common base by which each family’s needs can be measured fairly and equitably. While we do ask that every family pays something for their child’s education, financial aid awards generally range between 10% and 99% of the annual tuition.
The following steps need to be completed by the following deadlines to be considered for financial aid in the 2017-18 school year.
1. Complete and submit the financial aid application by February 15, 2017. Complete all parts of the application, which is provided by FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Before completing the form, carefully read all instructions. Any omission on the application can result in a delay in awarding financial aid. It is recommended that you complete the application online at online.factsmgt.com/aid.
2. Submit a copy of your 2016 Federal Income Tax Return to FACTS by March 1, 2017. The copy of the tax return must include all schedules, W2’s and 1099’s (and any business related tax forms and returns).
3. If all of your financial aid application is complete at the time of admission decisions, Mary Meyer school will notify you of your financial aid award. If it is not complete, we will notify you of your award once your file is complete.
