WE WORK TO MAKE MSD ACCESSIBLE TO EVERY CHILD WHO WANTS TO BE A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY.
We strive to make MSD accessible and affordable to families and sustain our commitment to socio-economic diversity in 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 Tuition Assistance. Toddler families are not eligible for Tuition Assistance. All Tuition 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 Tuition Assistance application is available beginning in November and the deadline is in mid-January. This process must be completed by early mid-January to be considered for the initial round of MSD Tuition Assistance awards. MSD Tuition & Billing 2018-2019 Information.
