Financial Aid

Early in the formation of Tarbiyah Academy, the Board acknowledged that there would be qualified students who lacked the financial resources to pay for tuition. Members of the Board recognized that not only would these children benefit from a Tarbiyah education, they would also enrich the School. Despite the finite and scarce nature of financial aid monies, Tarbiyah will do its best to balance a variety of competing interests when making financial aid decisions and awards.

Financial Aid is determined by a third party service (TADS) by carefully reviewing each family’s application, including annual income and tax returns, family size, and extenuating family circumstances.

The following has been updated to reflect the Financial Aid Tuition Assistance process for the 2016-2017 Academic Year:

  • Families interested in financial aid should apply by clicking the button below. Once you login, click on the 2016-2017 academic year at the bottom of the screen, select the state of “Maryland” and the city “Elkridge.”  You are now ready to fill out the financial aid application for the next academic year.

  • Once an application is filled, TADS will request specific documents such as your most recent W2 and salary stubs.
  • Once all documents have been uploaded to TADS, it takes 2 weeks to verify all information.  Financial Aid awards are only made on accounts that have “Good” standing with TADS.  “Good” standing means that all information in the application has been verified.
  • Important Financial Aid Deadlines:
    • Priority Financial Aid Deadline – February 15 – all documents MUST be submitted to TADS by this date in order to get a timely decision. The bulk of the Financial Aid fund will be awarded at this time.
      • Decision made by March 15
    • Regular Financial Aid Deadline – April 1 – all documents MUST be submitted to TADS by this date in order to get a timely decision.  This is only applicable to any remaining financial aid funds.
      • Decision made by May 1
    • Financial Aid application and awards made after these deadlines will be dependent on available funds.
  • All financial aid awards will be emailed to applicants by the decision date above.
  • Financial Aid Appeal:  Tarbiyah understands that some families have extenuating circumstances that are not always shown through the Financial Aid Application process.  If you feel TA is the best option for your child, email admissions@tarbiyahacademy.org with a letter explaining your extenuating circumstances that have not been captured by the financial aid application. Despite the finite and scarce nature of financial aid monies, Tarbiyah’s Financial Aid Committee will do its best to balance a variety of competing interests when making financial aid decisions and awards.

Please note that applying for financial aid is a lengthy process that takes up to 2 weeks once all documents have been submitted.
