Need-based Tuition Assistance

MMS offers need-based tuition assistance to families who qualify. Scholarships are granted to families who:

  • Demonstrate financial need
  • Demonstrate a long-term commitment to MMS
  • Meet academic requirements
  • Meet additional requirements as set forth in the individual scholarship guidelines.

Application for Scholarships
Current families enrolled in our programs apply for a scholarship at the time of re-enrollment. All applications are submitted to a third-party source (electronically), which shares with MMS the amount of tuition assistance the family qualifies to receive. The family bears the cost of submitting the application.

Families new to our programs who wish to qualify for scholarship assistance follow the same procedure at the time of their enrollment.

Awards
Scholarships are awarded first to qualifying families who are currently enrolled in our programs. Additional awards are granted on the basis of availability.

Financial Responsibilities

  • Scholarship recipients must participate in the Annual Fund.
  • Scholarship recipients are responsible for all supply fees.
  • Scholarship recipients with an outstanding account balance will not be granted a new scholarship until all ledger charges have been paid.

For more information on need-based tuition assistance, please contact the Business Office.
