Tuition Assistance Process
Miriam School is committed to supporting its families in their goal to educate students with learning disabilities. Each year, with the support of the Miriam Foundation, Miriam School offers partial tuition assistance to families who demonstrate need.
After acceptance into the program parents are asked to fill out tuition assistance information which is reviewed by a tuition needs assessment agency that makes a recommendation based on the family’s need. A committee reviews each family and determines the final amount of assistance to offer. Funds are limited and are given on a first-come, first-served basis. Regardless of need, all families that receive financial aid make some contribution to the cost of tuition. A new application must be made each year for both new and returning families.
Many factors go into determining whether a family demonstrates the need for financial aid including family income, net worth, assets, debt, and the number of children in tuition-charging schools, etc. Financial need is defined as the difference between the cost of a school and the family’s ability to pay for these expenses. If in doubt, it is always better to apply for tuition assistance.
Because Miriam School has a rolling admissions policy, applications for financial aid are accepted on an ongoing basis. However, because the majority of awards are given in advance of each school year, the optimal time to submit your application is between February – May.
Families interested in tuition assistance should first contact the admissions director and go through the admissions process. Acceptance into the Miriam School program is a pre-requisite to being considered for tuition assistance.
