Morristown-Beard School is committed to upholding our tradition of enrolling a qualified and diverse population. Admission is granted without regard to a candidate's ability to pay, with our financial aid program therefore serving as a vehicle for strengthening the student body and enriching the experience of all MBS students.
Financial need is defined as the difference between the cost of an education and a family's ability to contribute to that cost. We believe that parents have an obligation to provide for their child's education to the extent that they are able, and therefore utilize the services of TADS to help determine a family's eligibility for financial aid. Several factors including income, assets, liabilities, and the number of children in tuition-charging schools are taken into consideration. In order to apply, families must complete the TADS application, and file copies of the 2016 and 2017 IRS Form 1040 with all schedules and W-2s with TADS by the deadlines listed below.
In accordance with Morristown-Beard's Financial Aid Policy and Procedures, parents who are divorced, separated or have never been married are both required to file with TADs and provide all required supporting tax documents. While families must reapply for aid each year, unless there is a significant change in demonstrated need, we are committed to continuing support at the original level of funding. Due to the complexity of the financial aid formula, we are unable to provide analysis without a full application; however, we encourage all families who believe that they may be eligible to apply. Please do not send any financial documents to MBS. All paperwork must be submitted directly to TADs.
