Financial Aid

Manzano Day School offers financial aid based on demonstrated need and available funds. The maximum award covers 50% of the total tuition. Manzano Day School partners with School and Student Services (SSS) to determine a family’s financial need. There is a financial aid application process that is separate from the admission process. Families are encouraged to discuss this opportunity with the Director of Admission and Financial Aid, Emily Villegas.
The 2023-2024 financial aid application(including the Wings scholarship application) is available October 1, 2022, and is due by March 1, 2023 (for first consideration). Please note that a copy of your 2022 taxes and W2s/1099s are required with the application, so it will not be possible to complete the financial aid process without these documents.
New and returning families are required to apply by March 1 in order to be considered in the first round of consideration; late applications from returning families may not receive a full award, depending on financial aid funds available at the time of application. New families whose children apply for admission to Manzano Day School after the March 1 deadline are encouraged to apply for financial aid as soon as possible. Financial aid is awarded based on a family's demonstrated need and funds available.
