Tuition & Financial Assistance

Investing in Your Child's Future

We provide an academically rigorous yet supportive environment that reflects our mission to know, love, and challenge every child. A Meadowbrook education is an investment in your child’s future, and tuition dollars directly support the unparalleled faculty, programs, and facilities that distinguish our school. We provide financial assistance so that qualified students can benefit from this collaborative, multidisciplinary, and multicultural atmosphere.

We understand that decisions about your child’s education are far from easy, and we’re happy to provide guidance regarding tuition and financial assistance during that process. For more information, please contact Laurie Geromini, Director of Placement and Financial Assistance, at 781-314-9228 or lgeromini@meadowbrook-ma.org.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will a request for financial assistance create an obstacle to my child’s admission?

No. Meadowbrook strongly encourages admissions applications from families from all walks of life and from all economic circumstances. Every applicant is considered by the Admissions Committee regardless of financial assistance request. The Financial Assistance Committee works separately and concurrently to determine fair and appropriate levels of assistance for each applicant.

What happens if I apply but don’t qualify for assistance?

Students are considered for admission to Meadowbrook regardless of financial circumstances. Whether or not an applicant’s family applies or qualifies for assistance and whether or not Meadowbrook is in a budgetary position to meet financial need has no bearing on the Admissions Committee’s consideration of the applicant for admissions.

How do I apply for financial assistance if I am separated or divorced?

Parents/legal guardians in separate households are required to submit a separate PFS application form for processing to SSS. The School expects both parents/legal guardians to participate in the financial assistance process and to contribute to the cost of education to the extent of their financial ability. The School may take into account additional information, such as hardship or special circumstances, of each family situation.


What if my tax form is filed late?

Send your most recently completed 1040 Tax Return. If your current year return is not yet available, please send a copy of your previous year’s return and forward a copy of the current return as soon as it is completed. All financial assistance awards for the upcoming fall are contingent upon the receipt of the current year return.

When will we be notified about our assistance offer?

We strive to mail decisions to current Meadowbrook families before the end of February 2020. For new families, decisions are communicated in accordance with the timetable for offers of admission, on March 10, 2020.

Do we have to apply for assistance every year and can we count on aid continuing in subsequent years?

Yes, all families seeking financial assistance, whether currently enrolled or applicants for admission must file a new application each year. Unless there is a significant change in a family’s demonstrated need, Meadowbrook will strive to renew the family’s assistance at approximately the same level of funding as in previous years, to the extent that the School’s resources permit.

If we do not receive aid in our first year at Meadowbrook, is it possible to receive aid in future years?

A full Meadowbrook education spans up to ten years, and Meadowbrook is strongly committed to the continuation of its students’ enrollment. Families’ financial circumstances may change over time. Families facing unexpected financial need are encouraged to engage in the financial assistance process and to promptly contact Laurie Geromini, Director of Financial Assistance.

Is there a tuition payment plan available?

Yes, the School offers two choices: (1) a nine-month plan, with payments beginning in July and concluding with the final payment in March of the subsequent year; or (2) a ten-month plan, with payments beginning in June and concluding with the final payment in March of the subsequent year. There is a one-time enrollment fee of $100.00 for electing a payment plan.

Who sees my financial information?

Every parent’s financial information is held in confidence and shared only on a need-to-know basis.
