Tuition Assistance

The Brickton Montessori Board of Directors annually allocates a portion of the operating budget for tuition assistance programs. We offer financial aid to families who demonstrate financial need and are committed to progressing through the complete Montessori program through 8th grade.

To be considered for our tuition assistance program, families must submit an application through Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST). FAST is an independent financial aid evaluation company (powered by Independent School Management, ISM) that will verify and make a recommendation to the Brickton Financial Aid Committee. Our Financial Aid Committee has the final determination regarding the financial aid award amount.  Please note: tuition assistance is not available for the Nido, Young Toddler and Toddler programs (3 -36 months).

The formal Financial Aid Application period is scheduled based on the Re-Enrollment period each year, typically late January/early February. A live link to the FAST system is shared with current Brickton families at that time. New families are invited to apply after the current family re-enrollment period.

Currently and continuously enrolled Brickton families have priority consideration for programs, schedules, and financial aid consideration at the time of re-enrollment each year. New families may only apply to FAST after their application and enrollment forms are submitted, and the priority re-enrollment period has passed.

Elementary and Middle School students are given priority consideration during the financial aid process.
