All kinds! We seek students who have demonstrated academic potential and intellectual curiosity, along with interests and talents in athletics and the arts. We are looking for strongly motivated and creative students; students who are willing to try new activities and who enjoy collaborating with others; students who come from diverse family backgrounds and cultures, and students who will become good friends and leaders in our community. There is no one typical Maple Street student; rather we seek to build a close community of strong individuals.

Q.  How is Financial Aid awarded?

Aid is based on need as established by TADS. TADS provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. A committee determines how to apportion the available financial aid funds among eligible families. We support 40% of our students with financial aid. To learn more go to the Financial Aid section.
