    As demand for private and independent school tuition assistance from families is rising, implementing a successful financial aid program is more imperative than ever for schools to keep finances healthy and enrollment thriving. To support our schools in their efforts, Community Brands is bringing together SSS and TADS Financial Aid to give families an improved application experience.  

    A single financial aid application 

    This fall, all families applying to either SSS or TADS schools will do so through a single financial aid family portal – filling out just one application and paying only one application fee. This innovative approach will eliminate the need for a family to fill out separate applications depending on their school selections and pay two fees.  

    Helping families who need it most 

    The unified family portal also expands the means-based waiver (MBW) to more families. This pioneering waiver program exclusive to SSS for the past six seasons will now be available to help families who apply to TADS schools. The truly unique program automatically identifies families who meet specific criteria and waives the application fee for those families.
