Financial Assistance Applications & supporting forms due March 17, 2023
Financial assistance at MDS is now open!
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 the receipt of a grant, although we do our best to help as many qualifying families as possible. MDS awarded approximately $90,000 in financial assistance this year to approximately 26% of the student body. To be eligible for financial assistance at Montessori Discovery School, you must have an active enrollment application for your child to MDS and submit your completed financial assistance application, including documentation to FACTS.
Applications Open January 1st, 2024. Applications received by March 15, 2024, will be given full consideration. Applications received after March 15, 2024, will be considered as funds are available. Please submit 2022 W2s and 2022 IRS 1040 forms by March 15, 2024.
