Financial Aid

We understand that financing education can be challenging for some, which is why MCS offers a robust financial aid program aimed at bridging the gap between full tuition costs and what families can realistically afford. We're excited about the possibility of having your family join our vibrant school community and appreciate your interest in exploring our financial aid options to facilitate enrollment at MCS.
 
For new applicants, we strongly encourage applying for financial aid alongside the submission of the enrollment application. To start this process, complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (Financial Aid Application) via the TADS website.
 
Based on the information provided in your Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS), MCS will receive an estimate from TADS regarding your family’s ability to cover educational expenses for the upcoming school year. This estimate serves as the primary factor in guiding the MCS financial aid committee to make impartial and fair award decisions. 
 
Given that financial circumstances can fluctuate annually, families are required to reapply for financial aid each year.
How to Apply
  1. Visit sssandtadsfa.force.com/familyportal and, if you don't already have one, create a Family Portal account with your email address and a password.
  2. Complete and submit the PFS. Use the MCS partner code: 200449. We recommend having all the documents listed in step 4 available. Note that you can log out of the portal at any time and return without losing your progress. Refer to the How to Apply for Financial Aid document for guidance.
  3. After all PFS sections have green check marks, click the “Submit & Pay” button to proceed to payment. Note that the $60 fee is nonrefundable, although families eligible for a Means Based Waiver will have this fee waived automatically. Once submitted, your PFS cannot be withdrawn from the SSS system.
  4. Submit the necessary documents according to SSS guidelines. MCS cannot proceed with your award until all documentation is provided. Required documents include:
     
    • 1040 with all schedules and attachments
    • W2
    • A copy of your paycheck/paystub.
Plan Ahead: The PFS is comprehensive, so we advised to not wait until the deadline. While we're happy to assist you, inquiries about the PFS are best directed to SSS at (800) 344-8328 or [email protected].
