Scholarships

BCMS, in line with American Montessori Society guidelines, sets aside a portion of yearly tuition for scholarships and financial assistance. Financial Need Scholarships (FNS) are offered to families in the spring of each year for the next school year. FNS are available only for students who enroll full-time.  Families wishing to apply for a FNS can apply online through the independent agency Private School Aide Service (PSAS). All applications must be completed and received by the yearly deadline to be eligible. You will need a School Authorization Code to complete the application. Please consult the office for this code. Eligibility is evaluated by PSAS and families in financial need will be ranked anonymously in order of need, from greatest to least. The anonymous applications are submitted to the BCMS Board of Directors Scholarship Committee, which is comprised of two Board Members, for review. Scholarship monies are awarded to all families that qualify, based upon degree of need. For more information about scholarships, please consult the BCMS Community Handbook or visit PSAS online. In addition, interested families can apply to The Basic Fund, an independent foundation that provides K-8 tuition assistance to low-income families. We'd love for this to work for you!
