financial aid

Stoneridge Children’s Montessori School grants financial aid to students who have been admitted to the school and have demonstrated need for assistance in paying the costs associated with a Stoneridge education. The Financial Aid Program seeks to ensure that once enrolled, a student need not withdraw for financial reasons. Financial aid is available for students in Children's House through Grade 8. Financial aid takes the form of tuition reduction rather than full tuition grants or scholarships. When a family has demonstrated need for assistance and completes the application process in a timely manner, financial aid is available on a limited basis.

Interested families must call or email the Admission Office at 978.927.0700, Monday through Friday, to request a financial aid application packet. The School uses the services of Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) by Independent School Management (ISM). FAST will provide analysis of a family’s finances and will help to determine the family’s suggested contribution for educational expenses. For current families, FAST forms should be completed and submitted online by December 5. The application is accessed by clicking the FAST button. All applicants for financial aid are required to submit a copy of their W-2 form and IRS Form 1040 from the previous year (without schedules) and the current year’s W-2 form and IRS Form 1040 when available. This allows the Financial Aid Committee to verify the family’s information used in completing the FAST Application and is helpful in helping the committee interpret reported information.

All applications for assistance are held in the strictest confidence. Applicants are usually informed of their financial aid award with their letter of acceptance or shortly thereafter. Financial aid awards are not negotiable. Families receiving financial aid must reapply for financial assistance each year.
