Our commitment to equity and inclusion

We recognize that each family is doing everything possible to make a meaningful contribution
towards their children’s education, so we strive to provide opportunities for families to enroll in
our program. Any tuition assistance is calculated based on the needs of a particular family’s
circumstances because it’s important to us that all families make contributions that align with
their financial means.

 

Indiana School Choice Scholarship Program

Alyssum participates in the Indiana School Choice Scholarship Program and accepts vouchers from the state for eligible K-6 families. Kindergartners  enrolling in this program must be five years old by October 1 of the year in which they are enrolling. 

Rates

  • 2024-2025 Tuition is $8100 per child for 3 & 4 year olds and $9100 for students K- 6th grade

  • After Care is $12/day. We offer a sliding scale for after care costs based on need.

 

Tuition Support Process

Step 1: As part of the inquiry process, each family estimates their income. Families who elect not to provide financial information will pay the maximum tuition for that particular school year.

 

Step 2: After an application has been processed and a child is offered enrollment, families are invited to provide additional information such as tax information that may help determine tuition appropriate for their circumstances. This amount may also include the Indiana School Choice Scholarship voucher for eligible families.

 

Step 3: The school informs the family of the final tuition rate and payment options. The family accepts and signs an enrollment agreement or declines the offer of enrollment.

Tuition Support FAQs

How is tuition handled in situations where parents are separated, divorced, remarried or cohabitants?

We ask that all parents who will be contributing to a child’s education please submit a Family Financial Statement as part of the application process. Special circumstances and/or legal agreements may be submitted for special consideration.

 

Who has access to my financial information?
The school is committed to protecting the privacy of families. All financial information received y the school is held in the strictest confidence and only the Alyssum Montessori Board of Trustees has access to a family’s application materials.

 

Is the tuition set for my child’s entire time at Alyssum Montessori School?
We ask families to resubmit financial information each year so that tuition levels can be adjusted as needed based on changing circumstances. Families who elect not to provide financial information will pay the maximum tuition for that particular school year.

Child concentrating on writing

The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction.
