Financial Aid Application Process

The financial aid application is available and instructions in English and Spanish for Grades 5-12.

It is very important to note that applying for financial aid has no bearing upon the Admissions Committee’s deliberation and assessment of student’s potential as a MMA student. Decisions regarding admission to MMA and eligibility for financial aid are made independently of each other.  The amount of financial aid awarded averages 15% off of the total tuition for the school year. Financial aid awards do not include uniform fees or other additional fees. The non-refundable deposit is required prior to registration.
For questions regarding MMA financial aid and our process please contact:
