Tuition & Fees
Intercultural Montessori’s hours of operation are from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday on days when school is in session. The school is closed on holidays, institute days, and parent/teacher conference days; Tuition includes materials and field trips. Tuition is based on the 40 week academic year and does not include summer camp. Tuition is not based on students’ actual attendance nor is it reduced during holidays or break periods.
Tuition deposit: 20% – a non-refundable advance tuition deposit of 20% is required to hold a student’s place in the program. This is due by March 21st of the previous year for re-enrolling students, and within two weeks of acceptance for new students. It is applied to your April and May tuition installment payments.
Full payment discount: 1% – a discount of 1% is given for full academic year tuition payments made on or before August 1st of the school year.
Tuition payment schedule: 8 installments of 10% each – families who do not opt to pay in full on or before August 1st can pay their tuition balance in 8 installments due August 1st, September 1st, October 1st, November 1st, December 1st, January 1st, February 1st, and March 1st. April and May there is no payment due because your 20% tuition deposit will be applied during those months.
Sibling discount: $1,000 – sibling discount applies to students who have a sibling currently enrolled or graduated from the final year of the program. The discount is not taken out of the 20% tuition deposit, but instead is applied to the payment(s) of the remaining 80%.
