Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance

Beginning October 1, 2016, families applying to La Reina for the 2017-2018 school year who can demonstrate financial need, may also apply for tuition assistance by submitting an online tuition assistance application at A processing fee of $34 is payable to TADS at the time of submission.

Families requesting tuition assistance must reapply each school year.

Funds for tuition assistance are limited. Priority consideration will be given to those families who submit their tuition assistance applications by February 3, 2017. Interested families should make every effort to meet the deadline. Applications received after this date will be considered based on any remaining funds available.

In order to receive notification of a tuition assistance award, an applicant must have received an offer of admission for the 2017-2018 school year. Offers of admission are sent on March 4, 2016 for all High School applications received prior to January 4, 2017. Family notification of tuition assistance amounts will be sent with offers of admission providing the family has successfully met the priority filing deadline. Families missing the priority filing deadline will be notified of any tuition assistance award approximately three weeks after completion of the online Tuition Assistance application.

All families must fully complete a two-step process in order to receive tuition assistance:

  • Step #1 is to complete the online application at and submit required documentation and letter of Special Circumstances (including prior year tax returns, revenue and expenses verifciation, pay stubs, and Form 4506-T), as specifed in the application. Priority consideration is given to those who apply by February 3, 2017.
  • Step #2 requires submission of all remaining documents requested for review and verification by TADS (including completed current year 2015 tax returns, K-1’s etc.). All requested documentation must be submitted to TADS no later than May 31, 2017.

Tuition assistance awards will be considered preliminary and remain as such until the school receives notification from TADS that all documents, including 2016 tax returns, have been submitted. Discrepancies will be evaluated and awards may be adjusted or revoked if deemed appropriate by the Tuition Assistance Committee. 

*Any information submitted in connection with tuition assistance applications is subject to audit and verification. Parents are required to provide all requested documented evidence to support information on the application. The school requires that families submit a signed IRS Form 4506-T (Request for Transcript of Tax Return) as part of the application process, which may be later used to verify submitted tax returns.
