Financial Aid

We understand that affordability is an issue for some families that are interested in a private school education for their child. In order to address these needs, the Board of Directors allocates a portion of the annual budget for financial aid. Maharishi School uses Financial Aid Independent Review (FAIR) for the assessment of financial aid need. All forms are submitted to FAIR directly through a website portal. Financial aid is only available to families that file taxes in the United States and Canada. 

Please note: An application for admission should be submitted to Maharishi School prior to, or at the same time as submitting a financial aid application to FAIR. For tracking purposes, please notify Maharishi School if you have submitted a financial aid application to FAIR.

To apply for financial aid, go to this direct link

  • School code: 114
  • School passcode: ms114
  • A copy of your 2016 federal income tax return must be sent to FAIR in conjunction with your online application in order for it to be considered.

Note: The priority aid application deadline is April 18, 2017, but applications can be submitted at any time. Additional financial aid awards may be given out to later applicants if funds are available.
