Pioneer Meadows Montessori is committed to an economically diverse student body and welcomes the opportunity to provide financial support where needed to help families send their children to the school. Approximately 30 percent of our students receive tuition assistance, and some awards help cover up to 25 percent of their tuition costs.
What kind of tuition assistance does Pioneer Meadows Montessori School provide?
Families who anticipate difficulty paying full tuition are encouraged to apply for tuition assistance. Tuition assistance consists of grants that do not have to be repaid. The criteria for tuition assistance are financial need and a willingness to contribute to the well-being of the school (for continuing students, demonstrated by volunteering and by participating in school activities).
How can I tell if my situation demonstrates financial need?
If you feel that you are unable to afford full tuition, you are encouraged to apply for tuition assistance. In recent years, approximately 40 percent of families receiving assistance had gross incomes over $50,000 and 60 percent had incomes less than $50,000. Every family’s financial situation is unique. Therefore, income alone does not determine need. Other assets, family size, and unusual expenses are all additional factors that affect the decision-making process.
