Financial Aid Program

We have a financial aid program that is designed to help families with the cost of tuition and is based on demonstrated financial need. We award nearly $3.5 million in financial aid each year. Financial aid awards may range from 5% to 95% of tuition. Families must reapply for financial aid each year.
  • About 50% of our families benefit from financial aid.
  • The average award is $23,000.
  • Each year, ten STEM scholarships are available for high achieving ninth grade students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. These awards may be up to 50% of tuition, and require both demonstrated financial need and additional application materials. STEM scholarships may not be combined with any other awards.
  • Each year, four Davis scholarships are available to ninth grade Hispanic/Latino students who will be the first to college in their families. These awards are for 100% of tuition, and require both demonstrated financial need and additional application materials. 
  • Financial aid awards require demonstrated financial need.
  • You may apply for financial aid and scholarships online at tads.com.
  • New Financial aid applications must be submitted at the same time as the Admissions Application. Currently enrolled families already receiving financial must reapply each year and submit their application by December 1.
Award amounts are based on assessment of a family's financial picture, including income, assets, family size, and other factors. Our Financial Aid Committee reviews all applications and makes financial aid award decisions annually. Each year, there are many more qualified applicants for financial aid than we have awards, so selection for one of these awards is highly competitive. Please review the Financial Aid FAQs for more detailed information.
*This tuition & fees rate is the discounted-for-cash payment rate. We offer parents the opportunity of paying tuition and fees by credit card. If choosing to pay by credit card, the amount will be the non-discounted-for-cash amount, which will be calculated through the online payment portal. As always, any tuition or fees paid with cash or check will continue to be charged at the discounted rate.
