An Investment in Education

Financial Aid

Our goal is to create a diverse school community, drawing together children and families from a wide-range of the Sarasota-Manatee community, in an independent school that will not seek government funding. We have built a financial aid fund into our budget to provide as much assistance as we can for families who could not otherwise afford the school. In addition, the school will offer a number of flexible tuition payment options. Applicants who wish to explore the availability of financial aid should contact us . Applications for financial aid will be considered through a confidential analysis of the family’s financial need. Contact us at tanyaryskind@montessori.org for more information about our financial aid program.

“The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.”
