Families requesting financial aid must submit a financial aid application with Clarity Tuition annually by the required deadlines of: December 1 for returning families; December 15 for new day applicant families; and January 15 for new boarding families. To get started, please go to the Clarity application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete and is accessible on most devices including mobile phones.
The School will do its best to meet the previous year’s percentage of aid for returning students provided there is no significant change in the family’s financial circumstances, and that the submission of all required application documentation is received by the required deadline.
In addition to the annual non-refundable deposit, all new students are required to pay a one-time refundable new student enrollment fee, and graduating students are required to pay a graduation fee for their senior year. This new student enrollment fee is refunded upon graduation less any fees owed to the School. Additionally, international students must pay a separate fee for healthcare coverage.
It is the School’s expectation that families paying full tuition will continue to do so unless their circumstances change significantly. New applications for financial aid, for families not previously participating in aid will be considered on a case-by-case basis. However, the Committee cannot guarantee that it will be able to meet the financial needs of all families.
Families may request a second review of their financial aid award by completing an appeal process within seven days after receipt of their initial award. The appeal process requires submission of additional detailed information on changes that have transpired since the original financial aid application was filed.
Payments to the School can be made in one of three ways: once per year; twice per year; and we also offer a 10-month payment plan through our affiliation with Tuition Management Systems (TMS). For more information, please contact the Business Office.
The following items are included in the cost of tuition: school meals, athletic uniforms, and local required school trips. Homework Club in the Middle School is also offered in the afternoon at no additional cost. Additionally, all parents and guardians are registered automatically as members of our Parent Association.
Masters values experiential equity and recognizes the importance of providing all students with access to participate fully in the life of the school. We offer assistance with the purchase of textbooks, art class supplies, music lessons, college preparation and tutoring, laptop access and transportation.
