A Solid Foundation for Lifelong Learning

Keystone feels strongly that Montessori education should be available to all children. We are interested in supporting families who are truly committed to embracing the Montessori approach and who reflect the broad socio-economic, cultural, and ethnic diversity found within the Charlotte area.

With this idea in mind, Keystone collaborates with TADS, a financial assistance screening service. Tuition assistance applications and information are confidential and will not be made available to anyone who is not directly involved with the administration of the school.

Once the admissions process is completed and the TADS tuition assistance application has been thoroughly audited, the school can then make a decision regarding tuition assistance. Please note that tuition assistance is awarded on a yearly basis, and reapplication is necessary each year.

TADS Application Information

Tuition assistance is available on the basis of demonstrated need. If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total costs of Keystone Montessori School, you are encouraged to apply.

TADS provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from TADS are used by Keystone Montessori School in accordance with its policies to determine the award amount.

Application Information
