Financial Aid

We are proud of our diverse school community – with families coming from a wide range of cultural, religious and economic backgrounds. Approximately half of our families receive some type of financial aid.

Even with multiple sources of tuition assistance or full sponsorship, all families must contribute some amount toward their child’s tuition. Parents are responsible for the full tuition amount if various scholarship sources outside of the Cleveland Montessori Scholarship Program fail to fulfill their commitment.

All families requesting financial aid MUST complete the Smart Financial Aid application form. Some families may be eligible for the state scholarship programs (Cleveland Scholarship, EdChoice and EdChoice Expansion).  Forms for these programs are available from the business office in February or from the Ohio Department of Education website.

BEFORE requesting financial aid, you must first file an Enrollment Application or Enrollment Contract for returning students.
