You don’t have to be wealthy to send your children to MCS, but you do need to be committed to giving them a truly different kind of education.

Every year we meet families who would like to send their children to our school who cannot afford the full cost of tuition.

As an independent school, we need to pay our way. In our case, we depend entirely on tuition and donations. However, we have built an allowance for tuition assistance into our budget.

We ask that each family pay their share of their child’s tuition to the best of their ability. Our funds are limited; however, we do our best to partner and find ways to support families.

Here is a list of scholarship opportunities for your family.


Children birth – 4 years through the Early Learning Coalition (income based)


Children Kindergarten – High school through Step Up for Students.

Open enrollment will be at the end of April. Please visit the Step Up website to get on their email notification list. (not income based)


Financial Aid

If you do not qualify for either scholarship, please apply for our school-sponsored scholarship here:
