We understand that the prospect of a tuition bill can make an independent school education seem out of reach for many families. It is an important part of our mission to allow access to a Montessori education for children through middle school, and we offer financial aid to families in an effort to reduce barriers to this access. Families with children enrolled in Children's House through middle school are eligible to apply. We strive to provide tuition assistance to all eligible families who demonstrate need while maintaining an affordable tuition for all of our families.
The process for requesting financial aid begins with submitting an Intent to Apply for Financial Aid Form to the Business Office by February 16 for the following school year. You will then upload your family's prior year tax return and relevant financial information into an online application called F.A.S.T. (Financial Aid for School Tuition), managed by Independent School Management. Collecting your financial information for this application is similar to the process of filing your taxes, and takes about the same amount of time. This should be completed by the last day of February for the following school year.
All information that you submit during the Financial Aid application process will be kept strictly confidential. We are here to help you through this process. With any questions, email Becky Harris, Business Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
