Application Fees
are non-refundable fees to be submitted upon application or re-application to MCMS and are not applied to tuition rates:       New students = $100   Returning students = $50

Deposits are due with submission of signed Enrollment & Tuition Contracts. Deposits are rolled over from year to year until a child completes his/her educational experience at MCMS. Deposits are refunded only after completion of a full school year and payment of full annual tuition costs, including any incidental charges, typically in the month of July following the completed school year.

Annual Fees are non-refundable and include program-related costs, such as classroom supplies/materials, paper products, snack/milk, most off-campus trips and transportation. Annual fees are included in each family’s first invoice of the school year, which typically occurs in August.

Annual Tuition may be paid in 1 installment (August), in 2 equal installments (August & January), or 10 equal installments (August – May). Families should select payment preference on the Enrollment & Tuition Contract; if none selected, 10 equal installments is assumed.

Sibling Discount: A 10% discount is applied to Montessori tuition for younger siblings from the same family. Sibling discounts do not apply to child care, annual fees, deposits or other charges.

Financial Aid: Funds are available each school year for qualifying families who need financial assistance. Please visit our website for more information about our financial aid program.

*Environmental Education Programs: Upper Elementary (UE) and Adolescent (AD) students participate in an outdoor environmental program each year. The UE program attends one week, typically in November. The AD program attends for three one-week trips, typically in September, January and May. Charges for this experience are set by the outside facilities, and are invoiced to the participating families by the school per the payment option selected on Enrollment and Tuition Contracts (i.e. 1-installment, 2-installments, 10-installments) regardless of attendance. Currently, tuition for each week is approximately $330. Financial aid offers through MCMS do not include these additional charges; however, payment plans may be made by contacting the MCMS Business Manager.
