MCS is committed to offering financial assistance based on demonstrated need. All current and prospective families are eligible to apply. MCS utilizes Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) to process financial aid applications.
All current and prospective families must complete a TADS online application. There is an application fee charged by TADS. This fee can be waived in certain circumstances.

The MCS TADS ID number is DU330660000.
TADS provides MCS with a confidential report evaluating the financial aid application and required supporting documents. The MCS Financial Aid Committee determines awards by taking into account the TADS report along with any additional information that a family might wish to provide. Parents may also write directly to the Head of School to explain any unusual circumstances.
Families new to MCS are encouraged to apply for financial aid at the time of their submitting an enrollment application. The MCS Financial Aid Committee will neither review prospective aid applications nor make awards unless or until a family has applied for admission and the student has been admitted.
All information submitted by applicants to TADS is kept strictly confidential. Financial Aid recipients are notified in writing regarding the dollar amount of the award. All awards are for the coming school year only and are not a guarantee of future awards.
The Financial Aid Committee will begin reviewing applications, determining awards, and notifying families annually in early February, so families are encouraged to submit applications through TADS annually by the end of January in order to receive full and timely consideration.
