Individualized Tuition Program

Menaul School offers the Individualized Tuition Program, which is available to all Domestic Day students (50% of our population participate in the program). This ITP allows families to apply for an individualized tuition amount, staying within 10-15% of your household income. Net tuition includes fees and lunch.

Why Individualized Tuition?

Menaul School is recognized as the #1 most diverse private school in Albuquerque. In a diverse and inclusive community like ours, everyone’s voices and contributions are of value. Individualized Tuition makes a quality private school education affordable for more local families, so the Menaul School student population will continue to look like the vibrant population of Albuquerque itself.

Most private schools strive to be more diverse, offering financial aid or scholarships to try to attract more diversity to their campus because of the benefits that brings to all. Menaul School’s community is naturally diverse; thus, Menaul School’s tuition model simply recognizes that fact.

Every family’s contribution is a sacrifice your family is making to provide the best learning opportunity possible for your student.

You’re An Important Part of a Community

You want your student to learn and thrive, at a school where your student is encouraged to consider other viewpoints, interact respectfully, and broaden their world view. Where better to do that than a school where in a typical year, a quarter of the students are from all over the world?

Being diverse also means we have a wide range of family incomes represented at the school. Some people think private school education is just for a limited group of well-resourced people. In reality, programs that we have in place at Menaul School are what keeps our community strong, with strength in our diversity.

It is important to us that you step foot on campus knowing you are part of a community. You are not artificially categorized according to what tuition you pay.

What to know before you begin

  • Parents/guardians can begin the FACTS Grant and Aid application at any point during the Admission process, prior to enrolling.
  • Have your Federal Tax form on hand. The Grant and Aid application evaluates combined household income. For dual households, each parent completes the Grant and Aid application one time per division (once in Middle School, once in Upper School).
  • Typically, once a FACTS Grant and Aid application is complete, it takes two weeks for FACTS to approve the tax form before the application will be processed. Menaul School processes complete applications on a rolling basis, twice per month.
  • Your financial aid application will be reviewed once your complete admission application is also received.
  • If you need support for the Grant and Aid application, please call 1-866-315-9262.

When you enroll at Menaul School during the regular decision period (decisions sent February 25th), expect a $500 deposit in March.
