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.

Programs and Eligibility:
All children under age 5 are expected to attend 5 mornings a week, 8:45am - Noon, without exception. Children age 5 and older are expected to enroll in the Full Day Program (8:45 am - 3:15 pm).  The Extended Day (Nappers) Program is available to younger children.

TODDLER students begin the program at approximately age 14-18 months.  At age 2-½, Toddlers generally transfer into a Primary classroom.

Beginning PRIMARY students must be between the ages of 2-½ and 3-½ unless transferring from an accredited Montessori school. PRIMARY students must be toilet-trained. The Primary Program is a progressive learning cycle which prepares the student for first grade.  Students are expected to stay for the full cycle.

ELEMENTARY students must be at least age 6 to begin the Elementary Program.  The elementary students complete 3-year cycles at both the lower and upper elementary level.

Registration: There is an annual, non-refundable Tuition Deposit of $1,500 payable with the contract for each student to reserve a place in the school.

Enrollment Fees – New Students Only:  A one-time non-refundable Enrollment fee of $2,300 (inclusive of tuition insurance required for all new students) is due upon signing the contract, in addition to the Tuition Deposit.

Occasional Use of Programs:  PRIMARY, ELEMENTARY and MIDDLE SCHOOL students may use the Early Morning & Late Day programs for a fee on an occasional basis when space is available:  $5 for any portion of Early Morning; $36 for Late Day (3:15-6:00 pm) or, for a portion, $22 for first hour. TODDLER students may use the Toddler Extended Day ($40) or Toddler Lunch Program ($20.00) for less than 5 days/week at the discretion of the Directress.
