Acceptance Fee: $1500
The Acceptance Fee is a one-time, non-refundable payment due when a student accepts an offer of admission. The Acceptance Fee is discounted to $750 for siblings, if the first child enrolled at MSD is still at MSD or if the first child has graduated from 6th grade at MSD, and so long as the parents’ account with the school is in good standing. The Initial Acceptance Fee for the 3-day Toddler class is $750. The second and final installment of $750 is due when your child subsequently enrolls in a 5-day program (for instance, as an Early Childhood student).
Applicants’ information is processed and standardized by Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS), so that we can make equitable comparisons of need. We encourage you to fill out the TADS forms online, as this speeds the process. Go to www.mytads.com. There is an Application Wizard to help you, and additional help at firstname.lastname@example.org and toll-free at 1-800-884-8237. If you would like a paper application, call TADS at 1-800-477-8237.
There is a fee ($34) payable to TADS to apply; if paying by check, make it payable and send directly to TADS. If you are made and accept a financial aid award, the fee will be refunded by MSD after enrollment.
TADS will require that you submit to them some supporting documentation: copies of your most recent W-2 and/or 1099, most recent paystub, most recent federal tax return, most recent corporate tax return, if applicable, and documentation of all other sources of income, such as social security income (see the website or application for further details). These can be faxed to TADS at (612) 548-3326, or mailed.
MSD’s School ID: DU330210000
School name: MONTE School City: DURHA
If you are applying for a Toddler (18 months – 3 years old) child in the 5-day (morning-only OR all-day) class, please enter grade as grade 7, NOT Preschool. If you are applying for the 3-day Toddler class, you should only check the box for “3-day attendance;” you will not need to enter a grade level.
Enter each child who attends MSD using our school code, as well as children for whom you pay tuition at another school or college, all on one application (see directions for Section 22). Enter ID# 99999 for children who attend another non-public school.
You can order an optional Parent Report for $8.00 after completing your application, which merely summarizes the information you gave to TADS. The same information, however, is available for free online.
All award decisions are made by MSD. You will receive notice about your award from MSD, not TADS.
In cases where divorced, separated, or never married parents are both contributing to the support of the child, both must fill in an application, or fill it in jointly. If tuition is paid all or in part by someone else (e.g. grandparent), these payments MUST be reported on the application in the section for Contributions in Education.
