Financial Aid Information
Hampstead Academy is proud to announce that the school offers need-based aid to families with a demonstrated financial need for the 2018-2019 academic year. Current and prospective students are eligible to apply for consideration. All students in our Early Childhood Program must either be enrolled or an applicant to our 5 Full-Day Program to qualify for need-based aid.
While it is our hope to be able to provide some financial assistance to those families with demonstrated need, it is expected that every family contributes to the cost of tuition and fees to the extent that family circumstances permit.
Families interested in being considered for need-based aid must complete an on-line financial need assessment and submit it directly to Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). As a third party, TADS will be able to help provide us with an objective assessment of what a family is able to contribute. The financial need assessment will take into account a family’s income, savings, assets, and liabilities, as well as any special family circumstances that you wish to share.
Financial Aid Application Deadlines
• Current Hampstead Academy families: January 19, 2018
• Prospective applicants to Hampstead Academy: February 23, 2018
Current students who submit and complete the TADS application by January 19, 2018, will be notified of any need-based aid that they may have qualified for in mid-February. New students will receive information about any need-based award that they may have qualified for with their admissions decision letter. All financial information that you provide will be held in strict confidence.
