WE WORK TO MAKE MSD ACCESSIBLE TO EVERY CHILD WHO WANTS TO BE A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY.
MSD is a not-for-profit institution and tuition and fees for each academic year are set by our governing Board of Trustees. Families of students applying to Primary through Middle School programs can apply for financial assistance. All financial assistance awards are made on the basis of financial need according to the guidelines of Financial Aid for Student Tuition (FAST) by Independent School Management, and the availability of MSD funds. The financial assistance application is available beginning in December and the deadline is in early February. This process must be completed by early February to be considered for the initial round of MSD financial assistance awards.
Prior to beginning the Financial Assistance process you must complete the Admission Process.
If you are interested in applying for Financial Assistance, please complete the MSD Financial Aid Form and return it to the MSD Business Office. You may mail, fax or drop it off in the Welcome Center.
After completing the form above, please begin the online application process through FAST. The Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) program provides a need-based financial aid analysis service that includes an income verification process. All information from FAST remains confidential and is reviewed by select administrators. You must apply for the financial aid each year, using the online FAST application. After applying, you will mail tax documents to FAST for income verification purposes.
*Please enter your name on the application exactly as it appears on your tax return. The online application process is self-guided. You can partially complete an application and go back to it another time, if you don't want to complete the application in one sitting.
**Do not mail your tax return until you have paid for the FAST application fee. After you complete your application, you will mail your tax return to FAST.
