Tuition Assistance Program
The Montessori School seeks to assure economic diversity in our classrooms and to prevent any child enrolled in the School from having to leave due to a family fiscal crisis. Information on our Tuition Assistance Program is available through the Admission and Business Offices or by clicking here.
