Financial Aid

Financial Aid Programs make affording an independent school a reality for many families. Financial Aid ranges from 5% – 75%. 

Financial Aid. (for students applying to grades K-8)FAST

Harborlight Montessori provides tuition assistance to families based on financial need. A family’s eligibility is determined through an evaluative process beginning with the application (click on FAST logo at left). FAST, Financial Aid for School Tuition, is a service of Independent School Management in Wilmington, Delaware. This secure online program (FAST) computes the parents’ financial statement and recommends an appropriate tuition contribution from the family. Harborlight’s Financial Aid Committee then evaluates the recommended award based on available funds. Harborlight determines eligibility for admission and re-enrollment without regard to a student’s application for financial aid. Confidentiality of financial aid applications, records, and decisions is assured.
