Financial Aid

Countryside Montessori School annually provides more than $400,000 in financial assistance. These needs-based awards allow Countryside to increase the diversity of the school community.

In order to be considered for Financial Assistance families need to complete the application provided by ISM FAST. This independent organization will then return a recommendation to the school on eligibility for aid. In addition families will need to submit a copy of the following to the school: a copy this year’s Form 1040, with all the attachments and a copy of the corresponding W-2’s. These will be kept confidential.

The Financial Aid Committee at Countryside considers applications for financial aid on a rolling basis beginning February 15th. No applications for assistance will be considered after May 1st. Applicants will not be required to sign an Enrollment Contract until they have received notice of an award, but parents applying for Financial Aid must have previously submitted an application for admission to the school.

Countryside Montessori School has chosen to use FAST – Financial Aid for School Tuition – by Independent School Management (ISM) to process your financial aid application. ISM will provide standardized and impartial processing in a confidential setting.Screen Shot 2015-12-23 at 9.32.53 AM(1)
