Maria Montessori International Academy is committed to providing the best education to children through Montessori methods. We believe that a Montessori education allows a child to flourish and achieve to his or her highest potential. In order to meet the needs of our growing family as well as our mission of building great Montessori schools in local neighborhoods, MMIA has created MMIA’s Education for Change.
Simply put, Education for Change is a leadership development system for attracting and retaining high performing teachers. As the increasing teacher shortage puts a greater strain on schools, both private and public, MMIA decided to be proactive. Education for Change provides a training ground for new teachers to learn the Montessori discipline while at our Indianapolis school. After the initial training period, our teachers will expand into the new positions/locations available within MMIA.
We encourage every prospective parent to apply for financial assistance for MMIA through our program with School and Student Services (SSS). SSS is an online financial assistance application program used by hundreds of schools across the country. We use SSS to help us evaluate a parent’s level of need. This is the only tool we use to determine the tuition a parent will need to pay if they do not pay full price.
Here are four key pieces of information for families wishing to apply for 2019-20 financial aid:
– Parents must fill out a Parent’s Financial Statement, or PFS. The fee for a PFS is $51.
– A great place to being the process is the SSS Website for Parents & Families http://www.solutionsbysss.com/
