Instructions and Deadlines

Our Financial Aid Partnership

Maimonides School is committed to making its Financial Aid Program available to all families who seek a Maimonides education for their children. This has been one of the core values of our institution since it was founded in 1937 by Rabbi Soloveitchik, zt”l, and it remains a priority today. To that goal, Maimonides encourages any family to apply for financial aid who feels cost is a significant barrier to their child’s being able to attend our school.

The tuition committee endeavors to treat all families consistently and fairly, while at the same time recognizing unique situations. While we realize that tuition costs will still be a major expense even after accounting for financial aid, the committee feels a responsibility to balance the need for financial aid with the impact of that aid on the wider Maimonides community.

We expect that paying for a Maimonides education should be a priority for families in making decisions about how they spend discretionary income while their children attend the school. At the same time, we expect that those families whose financial status improves in the future will contribute to Maimonides in the spirit of giving back, HaKarat HaTov, and of supporting our commonly-held mission.

All information submitted through the financial aid process, as well as the resulting level of aid, is confidential and shared only with the tuition committee and the Business Office. Standard living expenses related to housing, food, and clothing, are protected in financial aid decisions.  Other expenses, such as retirement savings, child care, and tuition at other schools, including college, are taken into account at levels determined by a variety of factors.  Some expenses, such as extracurricular activities or charitable contributions, are considered at modest levels or not considered at all.  Family income and assets are reviewed, as well as expenses.

Financial aid is granted on an annual basis, for the upcoming academic year only. Families must complete a new application and submit updated tax documentation each year.

Maimonides School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in administration of its financial aid program.
