Financial Aid

We recognize that a Montessori education can be a significant investment. In order to make a Montessori education accessible to qualifying families, a limited financial aid budget is awarded to qualifying applicants. Awards are made according to financial need as indicated by School and Student Service for Financial Aid guidelines. Financial Aid is provided by Montessori Academy and scholarships funded by Corporate/Business Sponsors through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program.

Important tips for applying for financial aid

  • On the SSS application, be certain to list Montessori Academy (#3019) as one of the schools to receive the SSS Report of Family Contribution (RFC).
  • Submit a complete, signed copy of your latest Federal Income Tax Return including all schedules and W-2 forms to Montessori Academy. (For families filing separate returns, a copy of each is required.)
  • Make two photocopies of the completed PFS form. Keep one copy for your records and send or bring one copy to Montessori Academy
