Once we are enrolled, do we need to reapply for admissions and/or financial aid every year?
Once a student is accepted and enrolled, your contract will automatically renew each year. There is no need for families to reapply for admissions each year. See MSD 2018-2019 re-enrollment details .

Families are expected to reapply for financial aid each year to submit documents to reflect their most current financial status and new awards are granted each year. Current families are given priority to be allocated financial aid to secure their children’s uninterrupted educational career at MSD.
