Community Service Program

We consider our school a learning community in which all of us (the village) help the children to learn, grow and develop holistically into well rounded, unique individuals.
We try very hard to keep our costs down each year to make Montessori education affordable as we feel it should be an education that any family should be able to afford. However with the rising cost of everything, it is often very difficult to do this. As one creative way of keeping our tuition costs down, we have instituting a Community Service program, wherein each family will be required to perform 10 hours of service for the year (that’s one hour per month) or pay a surcharge of $200. There are always chores to do, things to fix, lawns to mow, gardens to be weeded…the list goes on and on…
Upon registration, you will be asked to choose whether you wish to serve your hours or to pay the surcharge, which will be due upon payment of the Activity Fee.
