Affordable Excellence

The Directors and Board of Maria's House Montessori are committed to offering an uncompromising Montessori Primary experience in the most accessible way possible.  Many of our families qualify for school grants, Pennsylvania Early Childhood Aid, or one or more of the tuition discounts listed below (also found on the Tuition page of our 2019-20 Family Information Packet).  We invite you to explore any and all of these programs.  

Maria's House Founders Grants
Maria's House Montessori partners with FACTS (a Nelnet company) to process your grant application and eligibility determination in a way that's fast and secure.  Founders Grants defer a portion of monthly tuition for applicant families based on financial need.  Applications are processed in the order in which they're received.  Similar to FAFSA, the FACTS online application will take roughly an hour of your time, but we find it to be straightforward an relatively painless.  Families who have applied to our Academic or Summer program can expect to hear from us within two weeks of submitting a FACTS grant application.  When you begin your FACTS application, you'll be asked to create an account.  That account is strictly for the security of your grant application, and doesn't commit you to a course of action with Maria's House or any other educational institution.  Click here to go to the FACTS grant page now.

Pennsylvania Early Childhood Works 
Maria's House is a qualified provider for the Commonwealth's early childhood education assistance program, applying state and federal funds to preschool instruction for families of restricted means.  The Child Care Works homepage provides program guidelines and offers a direct link to the Pennsylvania Compass online application.  Click here to go to the Pennsylvania Child Care Works page now.
