Tuition ProgramWe Believe every student should have a quality education.Want to give your child a quality education but feel you can’t afford the cost? At Saint Demetrios Preparatory School, we believe that every student should have access to quality education, no matter his or her family’s income or size.That’s why we instituted an indexed tuition system, which uses a sliding scale to determine tuition costs for each student based on the family’s financial status.
Our Board of Trustees is dedicated to making The Saint Demetrios Preparatory School experience accessible to all families. Each student receives the attention and instruction they need to excel in their studies, not only academically, but also artistically, socially, and emotionally as well.
The Perfect Fit for Your Family
We use Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) as an objective, third-party representative to determine the right tuition amount for all of our families, regardless of the number of children applying per family. It provides us with a report that recommends how much a given family can reasonably contribute toward tuition costs. This ensures that no matter your family’s circumstance, we can set up a unique tuition payment plan that works for you!
Because private school tuition can be costly for one child, let alone multiple children in the same family, multi-child discounts are available if you qualify. Using the Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) Process within the Indexed Tuition Program, TADS will determine if more discounts are available for multi-child families.
The Indexed Tuition Application Process
To determine your place on the scale, please complete the TADS Financial Aid Application form or for additional information financial aid assessment/third party aid assessment<click here>. Please note that there is a fee to complete the form.
In addition to completing the form, please also submit your most recent IRS form 1040 to TADS.com. Your information will remain confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside of the Indexed Tuition Committee.
We cannot make an indexed tuition decision until an application via TADS is complete and on file. Notification decisions will be made as TADS submits reports to the Admissions Office.
Once we have their report*, we will issue a contract for you to sign and return with a deposit to secure your child(ren)’s seat(s). If for some reason we are unable to agree on the tuition investment number, we will gladly refund your deposit.
* This third party resource does not decide whether tuition assistance will be given or how much to give; rather TADS provides a need-based tuition aid analysis. Inquiries concerning tuition aid should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or School Principal.
