At Princeton Montessori School, we believe education is an important investment and one of the most valuable gifts that you can give to your child. We understand your decision involves many considerations, including affordability. For this reason, we encourage all families to explore their eligibility towards 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.
Tuition Awards and Savings
Tuition Assistance: Families needing tuition assistance in order to enroll their child(ren) are encouraged to apply for Tuition Assistance. After submitting an enrollment application to the school, families should submit an additional tuition assistance application through Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). TADS compiles the information for review by the Tuition Assistance Committee who then determine if an award can be granted. Parents will be notified of the award status within three weeks of the completion date of required documentation and school acceptance. All applications for Tuition Assistance are treated with the utmost respect for confidentiality and may be renewed on an annual basis.
Princeton University Employee/Graduate Student Discount: A Princeton Montessori Society discount is awarded to Princeton University families. Parents working at other corporate and educational institutions are welcome to discuss the possibility of facilitating a tuition savings meeting with their employer and Kathy Marmion.
Alumni Rising Stars: Princeton Montessori School alumni’s children are eligible for tuition savings. Alumni who attended the School for a minimum of three years are eligible.
Nancy McCormick Rambusch Award: To support our commitment to attract and maintain a dynamic and diverse community of families, the Nancy McCormick Rambusch Award is based on social and academic merit in addition to financial need. The award is 50% of the program fee and is offered to students entering grades 2-6 who meet the financial and merit criteria. Click here for more details.
From One Montessori School to Another: This award is for new students entering Elementary or Middle School who previously attended another Montessori school within the last 24 months.
Other Considerations for Tuition Savings
Refer a Friend: Parent referrals to the School help us to maintain a vibrant and supportive community. Referring families receive a one-time credit of $500 for each new family referred upon the new family’s enrollment. Current families are eligible; no limit to number of new families referred.
Additional Care options: Selecting all Additional Care options is less than the fee for each option selected separately.
Academic plus Summer enrollment: The fee for Academic plus Summer is less than the fee for each option selected separately; the Academic plus Summer option must be selected at the time the enrollment agreement is issued.
SummerQuest Early Bird enrollment: Early Bird registration savings for full or part summer.
