Tuition Structure

We understand that a high-quality Montessori education is a privilege not afforded to everyone but believe strongly that each family has gifts to share as part of our community. As a result, we offer both a need-based scholarship program and an apprenticeship program to help families reduce the cost of tuition in exchange for their time.
