Customized Payment Plans

Indexed Tuition is a flexible tuition pricing plan based on each family’s specific financial situation. Macbeth Academy partners with Financial Aid for School Tuition, a division of Independent School Management (ISM), in a confidential process to determine each family’s customized tuition rate through submission of the Parent Financial Statement (PFS).

Number of children in the family and in tuition-charging schools

Extenuating circumstances (health, change in employment, other)

Who Should Apply?
Macbeth Academy is a diverse school community that values the inclusion of a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. All families can apply for Indexed Tuition including middle-income families and families with multiple children in tuition-charging schools.
How Does Indexed Tuition Work?
A family’s Indexed Tuition level is determined annually by a careful evaluation of the completed Parent Financial Statement (PFS) and related financial documentation submitted each year. Financial Aid for School Tuition by ISM allows independent (private) schools to use a standardized methodology to objectively assess what a family can afford to pay for tuition.
Macbeth Academy strives to meet the demonstrated financial needs of current and prospective families. In addition to the FAST application and tax returns for the previous two years, Macbeth also considers lifestyle choices and spending patterns as part of the award process.
In fairness to all applicants, education must be a top priority over luxury cars, vacations, and club memberships.
Macbeth Academy does not discriminate on the basis of color, creed, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability.
