Financial assistance at Montessori Discovery School is based on a family’s ability to pay as determined by FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment service and by Montessori Discovery School’s Financial Assistance Committee. Grants are awarded based on FACTS’ calculated need, available funds and enrollment spaces. The maximum grant available is one half of the tuition for our Primary and Elementary programs. Financial assistance is not offered for the Toddler Program, Extended Hours or Summer programs.
Applying for financial assistance does not necessarily result in receipt of a grant, although we do our best to help as many qualifying families as possible. MDS awarded approximately $70,000 in financial assistance last year to approximately 30% of the student body. To be eligible for consideration for financial assistance at Montessori Discovery School you must have an active enrollment application for your child to MDS and you must submit your completed financial assistance application, including documentation to FACTS.
Applications received by April 2, 2020 will be given full consideration. Applications received after April 2, 2020 will be considered as funds are available. All supporting documentation including 2019 IRS 1040 form must be submitted by April 15, 2020.
