Financial aid

“An investment in education pays the best interest.” Benjamin Franklin 

The MMS financial aid program is an important way we practice the Montessori peace philosophy and share the gift of a Montessori education with our community. Our program is designed to make high-quality Montessori education more accessible to families seeking alternatives to one-size-fits-all schools.

Tuition grants are awarded based upon demonstrated financial need, as well as our enrollment capacity, financial aid budget and the number of qualified applicants.  In addition, up to 100 percent scholarship assistance for middle school students is available through the Dana Gilliland Scholarship Fund.

The MMS financial aid program is funded solely through the private sector. Generous community investment in our mission has enabled us to expand our financial aid reach each year.
