Tuition Assistance Information for Applicants

Applications for tuition assistance for the 2020-2021 school year open on March 1, 2020.


St. Mary’s Springs Academy seeks to provide tuition assistance to those students in grades P3-12 whose family can provide documentation of need.


We believe enrollment in our school should not be limited to families who are able to pay full tuition. Our tuition assistance program enables us to assist deserving students who could not otherwise afford to attend. The tuition assistance program helps to achieve social and economic diversity within our school community. This goal is an integral and respected part of our school’s philosophy, operating budget, and fundraising objectives.


Tuition assistance is offered as a reduction of full tuition, which is determined through an analysis of family financial need. Student employment and athletic awards are not offered.


SMSA uses a third party company, TADS, to assess need. The application cost is $45. Both new and existing families can apply for tuition assistance via TADS.
