Financial Aid

COMMITTMENT

In order to serve our families who are committed to Montessori education, we strive to provide financial aid. Qualified students whose families cannot afford the school’s full charges are invited to apply for scholarships. We require that the recipients fully merit their grants by their cooperative spirit and positive approach to every aspect of their school involvement.

EXPLORE YOUR SOURCES OF SUPPORT

Because our resources for financial assistance are limited, not all students who apply for aid will qualify. Families are asked to adjust spending priorities in order to pay for school tuition. We appreciate what it means for parents to give their children’s education priority in their financial planning. Our hope is that families will evaluate their resources and explore sources of support such as grandparents, family trusts, or state agencies prior to applying to the school for assistance. Decisions are made independently of admissions decisions.

APPLY TO BE CONSIDERED

In order to be considered for tuition assistance, you need to first enroll and then submit an application along with your most recent tax returns. The financial aid program is open to all students of any race, creed, national, or ethnic origin.

F.A.S.T.

Following the guidelines and procedures of FAST (Financial Aid For School Tuition), powered by Independent School Management, a confidential assessment of discretionary income available for educational expense is made by the Head of School. Further information about the financial aid application process and forms for a financial aid request are available from our business manager.
