Dear Macon East Families,
The choice to attend an independent school is a critical decision for a family to make. A major factor in that choice is affordability. We at Macon East strive to make our school the best educational value in the Montgomery area when considering cost, quality of education, leadership opportunities, student life, and extracurricular opportunities. However, we understand that as affordable as we are, Macon East still may not be a financial reality.
To address that issue, Macon East will offer (for the first time in school history) financial assistance for tuition to both current and new families. Macon East has partnered with School and Student Services (SSS) by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) to offer financial assistance for tuition. Please click on the logo below to learn more about the SSS process. Financial information submitted by the family will be reviewed by SSS, who will then give a recommendation on the amount of tuition a family should be able to afford. From that information, Macon East will be able to offer a discounted tuition to those families in need. Financial assistance will be on an as available basis with a limited amount of funds for both current and new families. Based on a current family’s financial situation, tuition discounts will be offered up to a maximum discount of fifty percent (50%) for current families. Within your re-enrollment pack, you will find information about how to apply for aid if you are interested. We encourage you to apply early as well as use the online service provided by SSS that will allow your application to receive the most consideration for assistance.
We hope that this new program will allow many of our current families to remain as well as allow us to attract many new quality families to Macon East. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. We look forward to serving you.
