Jarrow Montessori strives to have a diverse student body. We believe that economic diversity contributes to a strong and healthy school community, and therefore the school endeavors to providing eligible families with financial assistance. Applications are reviewed confidentially and are considered separately from admissions.
Financial need is determined based on a family’s total financial picture, which includes income and expenses, as well as assets, such as savings accounts, investments, home equity and real estate, and liabilities, such as mortgages, student loans, and medical bills. All families are expected to contribute some amount to tuition obligations.
Financial aid funding comes primarily from the school’s fundraising activities, as well as the school’s operating budget. While financial aid grants are gifts to students and families that do not need to be repaid, it is hoped that, when possible, a portion of these grants will be replenished by the recipient family at some later date in order to provide opportunities for future students applying for aid. Families granted financial assistance are also expected to give back to Jarrow through volunteerism.
