Scholarships / Financial Aid

Westshore Montessori School has enlisted the services of FACTS to assist the Financial Aid Committee in allocating need-based financial aid and scholarships to families of children enrolling in the Preprimary and All Day Community programs. This service is only available to families who have submitted an Application for Enrollment and have paid the application fee. FACTS does not decide whether financial assistance will be awarded or how much to give; rather FACTS provides an analysis service that includes recommendations of what a family should reasonably be expected to contribute towards tuition. All information from FACTS is kept confidential and results are reviewed only by the Financial Aid Committee to assist them in determining appropriate awards.

Please call the school office 440.899.7911 to request  Student Aid. The office will provide you with a link to sign up for FACTS financial aid
