Tuition Assistance (Needs Based)

The Montessori Community School has a tuition assistance fund available for families who may not be able to pay the full tuition amount due to their financial circumstances. Current MCS students are given priority for tuition assistance and are required to have their submissions completed by March 31. Depending on the level of need exhibited by existing students, tuition assistance may be available to new families, however, to ensure adequate funding for our existing students, this amount will likely not exceed 20%.

All inquiries, applications, and supporting documentation submitted regarding tuition assistance are treated confidentially.

How To Apply For Tuition Assistance

MCS utilizes the FACTS Grant and Aid Program to process our tuition assistance applications. To apply for tuition assistance, go to and follow the instructions for completing the application. There are several items of supporting documentation that are required to be submitted, so we encourage you to read over the application closely. Applications for tuition assistance must be submitted every year it is requested.

How Need is Determined

The FACTS Grant and Aid Program provides a recommendation of the potential need based on the documentation provided, however, the awards are ultimately decided by our Financial Aid Committee.

Non-Custodial Parent Requirement

MCS believes that the primary responsibility for educational expenses lies with the child’s parents. Therefore, both natural parents must submit financial information to establish eligibility for financial aid. Regardless of marital or custodial status, both parents must follow all the financial aid application steps.

All dates reflected are based on the upcoming academic school year 2019-2020. This information is accurate as of 1/16/2019 and may change at any time.
