TUITION ASSISTANCE & HOW TO APPLY
The policy of funding most of the school’s annual operating expenses is with tuition dollars. Therefore, tuition controls, in large part, the quality of the education AGBU MHS is able to offer. While recognizing that some sacrifice is appropriate for something as crucial as children’s education, the Board acknowledges that financial assistance will be necessary to build and maintain the sort of student body AGBU MHS aspires to have.
In order for us to allocate our resources wisely and fairly, we have enlisted the help of the National Association of Independent Schools and their financial assistance program, School and Student Services (SSS). SSS does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather it provides a need-based financial aid analysis service. SSS provides the school with a report, which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from SSS is kept confidential and applications are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee. As a reminder, kindly note that you must reapply each year.
