Financial Aid

Gladwyne Montessori provides need-based financial aid to enable children of families who are committed to Montessori education to attend our school. The School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) serves as a third-party processor of applicant data. Financial aid applications are available online at Once an application is processed by SSS, reports are forwarded to Gladwyne Montessori for review by the Financial Aid Committee.

After the first review, applicants are considered on a rolling basis until all funds are expended. Financial aid awards are based on a number of factors including the total financial aid available for all students, the number of applicants, and their relative demonstrated need. Financial aid must be applied for every year. All financial aid information and communications are held in strict confidentiality. Use our financial aid checklist to ensure you complete all items for your financial aid.
