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), a service of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), which assists independent schools in determining 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 2021-2022 financial aid application for newreturning students is due by March 1, 2021 (for first consideration). Applicants applying for admission to Manzano Day School after this 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.
