A 5% per month discount from tuition fees is available for the second and subsequent children.  Due to ongoing expenses, credits cannot be given for absences or vacations.

Enrollment

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.
