Maimonides School

Maimonides Affordability Initiative (MAI)

Maimonides School is pleased to offer the MAI Tuition Program as a way of easing the financial commitment for our families.

The 2019-20 MAI Tuition program has two components for eligible families: "MAI Flex" and "MAI Discount."

MAI Flex is available to families with children in Grades K-8.

MAI Discount is available to families with children in Grades K-12.

Eligible families must have net worth of less than $1 million (including home equity and non-retirement investments)

MAI FLEX (K-8)

This program is designed to allow families with children in Grades K-8 to pay a flexible tuition that varies with income.  

For students entering Kindergarten in September 2019, the calculation is 6% of AGI, with a minimum tuition of $14,910 - both guaranteed for 3 years!
 
For those students who entered the MAI Tuition program as Kindergarten students in 2017-18 or in 2018-19, the 6%
calculation remains the same for the 2019-20 school year, but the minimum tuition is $14,490.
