Apply for Financial Aid
Maclay School is committed to attracting well-rounded, diverse and motivated students. Enrollment, we believe, should be open to all families which is why we offer need-based financial aid for grades K-12. We encourage families to apply for financial aid as early as possible, since funds are awarded on a yearly basis. Families must reapply for financial aid each year. Amounts are not guaranteed and may differ from year to year based on fund availability and family need.Online financial aid applications will be available beginning January 2018.Step 2: Complete the Financial Aid Online ApplicationTo assist us in making financial aid decisions in a fair and equitable manner, Maclay is using an online system for the 2018-19 school year. This system is from the same company (FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment) that processes our enrollment contracts, so your accounts will be linked for simpler and efficient processing.
Families applying for financial aid will need to submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS no later than April 15, 2018 (earlier is preferred). Applicants can apply online by clicking the FACTS link. Once an online application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the application process:
* Copies of your most recent Federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules
* Copies of your most recent W-2 forms for both you and your spouse or partner in your household
* Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANFFor blended families, please know that we follow the same guidelines that the federal government uses for college financial aid. The custodial parent and step parent’s combined household income is used to determine financial need.All supporting documentation can be uploaded in pdf format onlineStep 3: Enroll at Maclay SchoolYour student must officially enroll at Maclay (electronic signature of enrollment contract and pay the 10% deposit along with one-time $600 new student enrollment fee if grades 6-12) before your child can receive any financial aid or participate in Maclay School or athletic activities over the summer.The Financial Aid Committee will begin reviewing applications after April 15th and will notify you of its decision as soon as possible (approximately mid-May). Please know that we do not award ‘scholarships’ at Maclay School. All financial aid is disbursed based on the financial needs of the family.Questions about Financial Aid?E-mail Mr. Chad McClellan or call him at 850-894-0841.
