Financial Aid

Families seeking financial assistance should fill out our scholarship application below. A limited number of partial scholarships is available. The money for these is provided by the fund-raising efforts of Morningside Montessori families.

Please note that we do not distribute financial aid to families applying to our 2-Day Toddler Program.


From the Morningside Montessori School Scholarship Committee:

Dear Scholarship Applicant,

Attached you will find a copy of Morningside Montessori’s Application for Financial Aid. For a scholarship application to be considered, it must contain all of the following items:

1. The attached “Application for Financial Aid” form, filled in completely.

2. A copy of your income tax return for the year 2014 and your W-2 form for the year 2014, along with a copy of your rent receipt or canceled rent check. (Although a copy of your income tax return for the year 2014 need not accompany your application for Financial Aid, a copy of your return must be submitted by April 15 & must support the information contained in your scholarship application).

3. A statement as to your projected income and expenses for the present year.

Financial aid is limited; no full scholarships are available at this time.

In light of the fact that we hope to provide tuition grants to as many qualified applicants as possible, we request that you give special consideration to Question #11 on the application  form. This question asks you to tell us the maximum amount of tuition that you can afford to pay for your child to attend Morningside. If extra funding becomes available and it is clear that you would benefit from more financial aid, you may be awarded additional assistance.

In order for the Scholarship Committee to make a decision as to the amount of aid they might award you, they must be aware of the total amount of tuition for the program(s) to which you have applied. And in order for them to know that, you must tell them two things: 1) the number of days/week that you’re applying for, and 2) the length of day (i.e., the number of hours/day) that you’re applying for. Please understand that the schedule you choose must be one of our listed schedules. Once financial aid is awarded, should you wish to reduce your child’s schedule, the reduced schedule must be submitted to the Scholarship Committee for reconsideration.

If you have any questions, please give the School a call. We will be happy to assist you.

Sincerely,

The Morningside Montessori Scholarship Committee **

** The Scholarship Committee is composed of three to four Morningside Montessori parents who are members of its Board of Trustees. All applications are reviewed with applicants remaining anonymous to the committee. Financial aid applications reviewed by this committee are prepared with privacy and confidentiality so that applications are reviewed objectively.

We remind you here that financial aid awards are based on the number of days/week, and the number of hours/day. Once financial aid is awarded, should you wish to reduce your child’s hours, this reduced schedule must be submitted to the Scholarship Committee for reconsideration. On the other hand, if you wish to increase your child’s hours, you should be aware that you will have to pay an increased amount of tuition. What we are saying by all of this is that IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO BE AS PRECISE AS POSSIBLE IN DECIDING ON YOUR CHILD’S SCHEDULE.
