Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Process

We believe Montessori education should be available to all children, regardless of their families’ income. Hawai’i Montessori School receives grants from the McInerny Foundation, G.N., Wilcox Foundation, and parent/school PTA fundraising. As a small, community-based non-profit, the time and energy that parents contribute is a key factor in making our fund-raisers successful and financial aid possible.

ALL interested parents and caregivers are encouraged to explore scholarships for Preschool and Early Learning programs through PATCH:
