At Meredith-Dunn School, we understand that often times one of the most difficult hurdles in overcoming your child’s learning difference is the financial hurdle. We work diligently to be good stewards of every dollar received. The actual cost of educating a student at Meredith-Dunn School is higher than the cost of tuition. However, through fundraising and development efforts, each student receives a “silent aid” of $2,000. Also, through grants and our Adopt-A-Student program, as many as 30% of our students receive additional financial assistance.
For the 2018-2019 school year, tuition is set at $14,740. A $500 registration/book & field trip fee is due at enrollment. All tuition payments are made through the Smart Tuition program and can be paid in full, quarterly, in twelve monthly payments (beginning June, 2018), or ten payments (August through May).
Each year, in late fall, tuition is prorated based on the number of days remaining in the school year. For example, in the current 2017-2018 school year, tuition from November 2, 2017 through June 1, 2018 would be $10,187. Similarly, tuition from January 4, 2017 through June 1, 2018 would be prorated to $7,600.
Financial aid is reserved for families in need and is determined through a 3-step process, which begins in March of each year. Families will apply online through Smart Aid for Families and will be required to provide current taxes and W-2’s. Additionally a form and letter should be sent to the school’s Business Office. The Financial Aid Committee will meet to determine awards, and families will be notified no later than May of each year (i.e. May, 2018 for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year).
