FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Wellan Montessori School strives to bring together a diverse community of families. Toward this end, we actively seek to keep tuition costs reasonable and to offer financial assistance when appropriate. Wellan uses a thorough evaluative process for financial aid eligibility beginning with your application through the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) School & Student Services (SSS) website. This secure online program evaluates a family’s ability to pay tuition based on factors such as income, net worth, housing costs, number of children and the cost of living for our area.
