Easy Ways You Can Support Our School Today!

The Grace Fund is a fund for families in need of tuition assistance. When you donate to this fund, you are helping to send a child to Grace Montessori Academy, setting them up for a lifetime of opportunities.

At Grace Montessori Academy, we strive to keep our tuition at a reasonable level for our families. The reality is that GMA student tuition does not cover the full cost of educating the child. In Montana, the average cost of public education is over $10,000 per year, per student.

GMA actively works to keep our costs down through community contributions and effectively organizing volunteer help. In addition, GMA pursues grants and other charitable opportunities throughout the year.

Your generous contributions helps us live out our mission, support operations, and enhance our educational programming.
