Apply for Financial Aid

Falmouth Academy uses Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS), which assists independent schools in determining a family’s financial need.  The TADS report is reviewed by our Financial Aid Committee and provides a guideline in making financial aid decisions.  All families applying for financial aid must submit a financial aid application to TADS by Wednesday, February 15, 2017.  For prospective families applying for admission and financial aid, your admission application must be completed before your financial aid application will be reviewed.

If you have any questions about the school’s financial aid program, please call Director of Admission Karen Loder at 508-457-9696, x236 or email at kloder@falmouthacademy.org.

  3. Submit your supporting documents. Please mail, fax, or upload a signed copy of your 2015 tax form 1040, W-2's and supporting documents to TADS no later than Wednesday, February 15, 2017. This is required from all families, including both custodial and non-custodial parents. Do not mail or e-mail any supporting documentation to Falmouth Academy.  All financial aid awards are contingent on the submissions of a family’s 2016 form 1040 by April 15th.

  4. All questions and communication regarding the submission of financial aid documents should be directed to TADS either online (http://www.mytads.com), by email support@tads.com, or by  phone (1-800-477-8237).

PLEASE NOTE: Financial aid review begins February 15th for completed applications of returning students and students applying for admission. Review continues thereafter if financial aid funds are still available. Missing the February 15th financial aid application deadline significantly reduces the likelihood of receiving financial aid. Financial aid decision letters are mailed in early March.
