2022 CCRF Financial Aid Policy header

For the 2022-23 School Year Only

The Montessori Academy of Arlington is offering a need-based Tuition Assistance Program for the 2022-23 school year. This new program, made possible by funding from the 2022 Child Care Relief Fund will provide financial aid to assist families within our community in accessing child care during times of need. These additional funds support our mission of providing a quality Montessori education to a diverse student population in partnership with parents. Funding is prioritized for families struggling to make tuition payments and those making under 85% of State Median Income.

This opportunity is provided only to those families who have enrolled for the 2022-23 school year. Applications are made through Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) and will be open throughout the 2022-23 school year. Financial aid provided through this program is only available for the 2022-23 school year and will not be available in future years.

TMA’s admission process seeks to select those families who we believe would be most compatible with a Montessori approach to education. Our admission decisions are made independent of a family’s ability to pay full tuition. We are acutely aware of the sacrifices families make in order to provide a TMA education for their children. Additionally, TMA seeks to achieve socio-economic diversity within our student body. It is our belief that diversity of talent, and background strengthens and enriches the school community. To that end, need-based financial aid is available.
