Parent Power Requirement
Montessori education celebrates the involvement of the entire family in the school community. In addition to regular tuition fees, each family must provide five (5) hours of documented service ("Parent Power Hours") to the school, or pay an additional $50.00 per month School Service Fee. Families choosing to meet this obligation by providing service to the school may meet the requirement with a combination of documented service and contributions. For example: A parent might fulfill one month's requirement by spending $10.00 on supplies for a classroom pet, and spending four hours transporting and chaperoning students on a field trip within the month. The tuition invoice for each month includes a tear-off portion which requires that each family either document the manner in which the Parent Power requirement has been satisfied for that month, or remit the appropriate monetary School Service Fee up to $50.00 for the month. Parent Power Hours or contributions may be "banked," i.e., a parent who provides more than five hours of service or $50.00 in contributions in a given month may carry the hours/contributions over to the following month, however this must be documented on the tear-off portion of the invoice when it is returned to the school. Parents should understand that the Parent Power requirement is not limited to service in their particular child's classroom.

Parents may elect to pay tuition and extended care fees in 12 equal installments (June 1 to May 1). Monthly installment payments are assessed beginning . Monthly installments are due the first day of each month (June 1 to May 1).
