Thanks to the generosity of donors, individuals, corporations and foundations, Meeting Street Academy is pleased to offer generous tuition assistance to help families with demonstrated financial need afford an MSA education. Families who qualify for Free or Reduced-Price Meals are not required to apply for tuition assistance. They are only required to provide the school with a copy of their current tax return and pay the tuition fee listed on the Tuition and Fees page and the extended day fee of $300 per year (if applicable).

For families who do not qualify for Free or Reduced-Priced Meals, determination of need is determined on a case-by-case evaluation for tuition assistance. Once an award is made, families can typically count on a similar award in future years, provided there is no change in financial circumstances. MSA’s commitment to providing an excellent education to all students includes financial assistance awards covering 100% of demonstrated need.


Who is eligible for tuition assistance?

New students in grades PK3 – 5th who show a demonstrated financial need as determined eligible to receive a tuition assistance award.

Is the award renewable?

Assuming no significant changes in financial circumstances, a family can expect that the amount of tuition assistance will remain consistent for the time the student is enrolled at MSA.

How can I know if my income will qualify for tuition assistance?

Any family who does not qualify for Free or Reduced Priced Meals is eligible for tuition assistance.

Is my child’s admission decision linked to my request for tuition assistance?

No. The admissions process is intentionally separate and administered independent of the tuition assistance award process. However, a student must be accepted for admission to be eligible to receive a tuition assistance award.
