uses Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) to analyze a family’s financial information
and evaluate each family’s specific need. TADS is widely used by independent
schools to provide an objective assessment of a family’s ability to pay
tuition. A number of factors contribute
to a family’s ability to pay tuition including: income, assets, general living and medical
expenses, number of dependents, number of children in tuition charging schools
and age of parents. Each case is evaluated individually and families in the same
income range may have different overall financial circumstances and therefore
receive different tuition assistance awards.
