Tuition

Enrollment Recommendations

The Montessori philosophy is based on a three-year curriculum.  We strongly recommend children be enrolled for at least two years to ensure they receive the maximum benefit of the program.  GMA is a non-profit organization and must meet expenses of a continuing nature, based on estimated tuition for the entire year.  If it is necessary to withdraw the child, a written notice of intent to withdraw must be given to the school one month in advance of the withdrawal date or that month’s tuition is still due.
