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 2018 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-7.

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

Eligible families meet one of the following criteria:
  • New to the school in either the 2017-18 or 2018-19 school years.
  • Returning families who applied for Financial Aid or MAI Tuition for the 2017-18 school year.
  • Families with net worth of less than $1 million (including home equity and non-retirement investments).

MAI FLEX (K-7)

This program is designed to allow families with children in Grades K-7 to pay a flexible tuition that varies with income.  

For students entering Kindergarten in September 2018, the calculation is 6% of AGI, with a minimum tuition of $14,490 - both guaranteed for 3 years!
 
For those students who entered the MAI Tuition program as Kindergarten students this year (2017-18) or in 2016-17, the 6%
calculation remains the same for the 2018-19 school year.
