We recognize that a Montessori education can be a significant investment. In order to make a Montessori education accessible, a limited financial aid budget is awarded to qualifying applicants. Awards are made on a competitive basis to students according to financial need as indicated by School and Student Service for Financial Aid guidelines. Aid is provided by Montessori Academy and scholarships sponsored by local businesses and is determined through an application process which reviewed by a third-party platform that determines the amount your family can contribute toward tuition. This estimate informs our financial aid committee as they determine a fair and objective award of financial aid.
- Financial Aid packets are sent out by request in December for the following school year. All financial aid applications must be received by the School and Student Service (SSS) and Montessori Academy by the middle of January to be processed for the next school year. Financial aid awards may be given to late applicants based on availability of funds.
- Financial Aid for Montessori Academy is funded by Corporate/Business Sponsors through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program. Businesses receive tax breaks for their contributions up to $200,000 per year.
