Maple Street is here to help as many families as possible afford an independent school education. We are committed to admitting students of diverse socio-economic backgrounds, who can benefit from our program.
Aid is determined by the family’s ability to pay, and the scholarship funds available at the time of application. To equitably distribute funds, families apply through TADS.
We believe that the family holds the primary responsibility for the financial support of education. We ask families to explore their resources when applying for financial aid so that the available funds may be distributed fairly and where they are most needed.
Financial aid applications for the upcoming school year are available in December of the preceding year, and financial aid applications are due mid-January.
Please read before applying:
- TADS estimates a family’s ability to pay school costs through a formulaic analysis of 2020 income, expenses, and family assets.
- Applications are required annually, and awards are based on financial need.
- Both custodial parents must complete a TADS application and all required documents in order for a family to be considered for a financial aid package.
- All financial information is held in the strictest confidence. Applications for aid have no bearing on admissions decision.
The TADS financial aid application must be completed and filed by January 15th, 2021.
To access the application, go to http://www.mytads.com/ or click on the button above. Then create an account and access application through the financial aid tab.
