Tuition & Financial Aid

Manhattan Catholic Schools has contracted TADS to determine financial aid awards to those families that apply for tuition scholarship.  Applications are made online with TADS and financial information requested will be sent to them.  When all information is complete, they will calculate the scholarship awards and notify recipients.  You will have access to TADS with login information to follow the process.  TADS will start accepting applications online starting March 18, 2021.  When all applications are completed and calculations made by TADS, they will send families notification of aid we can give.  They have supplied a worksheet to use but this will never be sent to TADS and is for your use only.  Select the application tab to send completed information to TADS. 

MCS has a benefactor for financial aid.  However the amount cannot meet the needs of all of our families.  Thus, no family can receive more than 50% of the cost of tuition for their family.  Other fees must be paid for by the family.   MCS pays an annual cost for the program.  The application fee for families is $42.  Thank you for understanding the change in our process.

 All families can apply online by going to  https://mytads.com, and clicking on ‘Financial Aid Assessment’ Or click on the links:
