Funding Needs

$100,000 annually for scholarships for children from low-income families to receive a high-quality, Montessori education.  Currently financial aid awards are capped at 50% of tuition to enable as many families as possible to receive some aid.  The need far surpasses scholarship funds available to award to qualifying students.
