Tuition & Financial Assistance
As a charter school, St. Vrain Community Montessori School does not charge tuition for its publicly-funded half-day kindergarten or for any of the elementary or middle school programs.
As with all other district schools, tuition is assessed for preschool and full-day kindergarten, as these are not covered by public funds. Please refer to the list of tuition fees at the right for the preschool and kindergarten programs.
Tuition Payment Timeline
A 10% non-refundable tuition deposit is paid upon enrollment (typically in February) for the following school year. A second 10% tuition deposit is paid in May. The remainder of the 80% can be paid in ten monthly installments beginning in August each year.
A limited number of scholarships may be available for preschool and full-day kindergarten for those who qualify. Scholarship priority is:
Scholarships are not available for full-day preschool. SVCMS requires proof of income for scholarship application eligibility and references the Federal Free Lunch program income levels in determining scholarship eligibility.
If you’re interested in applying for a tuition scholarship for half-day preschool or full-day kindergarten, please submit a scholarship application along with proof of income upon being offered enrollment in the school.
Submit your completed scholarship application to SVCMS with your completed enrollment packet and the school will notify you if you’re eligible to apply for a scholarship. You can request a scholarship application by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
