Financial Aid Assessment
St. Matthew Lutheran Church currently subsidizes 50% of each child's education via offerings and donations. However, we do recognize that some families may need assistance over and above the subsidized tuition. Tuition assistance is available on the basis of demonstrated need. If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total costs of your student's education at St. Matthew, you are encouraged to apply.
TADS provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from TADS are used by the Board of Education in accordance with St. Matthew policies to determine the award amount. Final award notices will be mailed to families at the direction of the Board of Education.
Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online at www.mytads.com or picked up at and mailed directly to St. Matthew. The processing fee should be made payable to TADS. Failure to pay the processing fee will delay the evaluation.
The following supporting documentation must be submitted to TADS via mail or fax. The required documents allow TADS to provide an evaluation and recommendation to our Board of Education:
