At MUSE School, we’re committed to creating a socio-economically diverse community and to supporting all families who share in our philosophies. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to reach his or her potential and uncover the genius within.
By offering financial aid, we’re working to make the MUSE experience as affordable as possible for everyone. However, as a nonprofit school, we are also raising funds to meet the demand for financial aid. Like all independent schools, the true cost of a MUSE education — small classes, personalized instruction, surrounded by a beautiful campus — far exceeds the tuition charged.
If you think you might need assistance, please consider applying for aid. We will happily work with you to navigate the financial aid process and paperwork.
MUSE’s Financial Aid applications are submitted through School and Student Services for Financial Aid
(SSS) a third-party organization created by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) to provide schools objective assessments of family financial information.
To submit your online application to SSS
, you will need:
- Separate Parent Financial Statement (PFS) forms for any adult contributing to the household income
- Signed copies of your most recent tax return(s)
- W-2 forms and/or 1099 forms from the past two years
- IRS Form 4506-T
If you have questions about the application forms, please contact The Office of Admissions at 818-880-5437 (M-F 9am – 4pm).
Financial Aid applications are due by Thursday, February 1st, 2018. Award decisions take 4-6 weeks to determine.
