Financial Aid

Beauvoir is committed to offering financial aid, as it is the school's belief that a strong socio-economic mix is an essential element of our educational philosophy and school culture. We are proud of this program, and know that all parents and children in the Beauvoir community benefit greatly from this commitment.

Grants are "need-based" only. To help determine a fair award, Beauvoir relies on the expertise of Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). Beauvoir uses TADS' calculation as a guide in determining a family's contribution. Children currently receive grants ranging from approximately 8% to 98% of full tuition. More than 1.5 million dollars in grants are awarded each year.

Admissions decisions are made without regard to whether a family has submitted an application for financial aid. However, acceptance to the School does not guarantee the School's ability to meet the financial need of every candidate.

FINANCIAL AID INSTRUCTIONS

There are two steps to completing a financial aid application for Beauvoir:

STEP 1: Submit an online financial aid application through TADS at www.mytads.com. Any parent, guardian, or other adult who has a financial involvement in the child’s life is expected to submit an application to TADS. Current Beauvoir families are asked to apply by late December; applicant families are asked to apply by mid-January. Upload the following documentation to TADS to accompany the application:
  • Completed and signed 2012 taxes, including all applicable schedules
    • Include Schedule C if self-employed
    • Include Schedule E if earning rental income
    • Include Schedule A if itemizing deductions
    • Include Schedule B for interest and dividend income
    • Include Schedule D for capital gains and losses
  • 2012 W-2s and 1099s
  • Most recent pay stubs or other proof of estimated income

STEP 2: Upload new tax documents to www.mytads.com, including:
  • Completed and signed 2013 taxes, including all applicable schedules (see above)
  • 2013 W-2s and 1099s
 
Preliminary financial aid estimates will be sent from Beauvoir in early March. Estimates are subject to change upon submission and further review of 2013 tax documents and any new information that adjusts your family’s financial picture. Confirmation of financial aid grants will be mailed in April.
