Approximately 35 % of our families receive some level of tuition assistance, and those families have incomes between $25,000 and $150,000.
We understand your decision to attend Princeton Montessori School involves many considerations, including affordability. For this reason, we encourage all families to explore their eligibility for the tuition awards and savings available, described below. The first step in being considered for any tuition award is submitting an application for enrollment to the School.
