Alyssum does not offer Before School Care
Our 2023-2024 tuition rate is $7800 per child for 3 & 4 year olds and $8800 for students Kindergarten through 6th grade. This rate is intended to be an “all inclusive” rate so no extra fees will be added on top of this set amount. After school care is a separate cost. Alyssum participates in the Indiana School Choice Scholarship Program and accepts vouchers from the state for eligible K-6 families. We encourage you to start a conversation with us about how we can help you meet your goal for a Montessori education for your child. Please don’t let finances keep you from considering Alyssum as an option.
The Application Process
STEP ONE: Send an Inquiry Email to Set Up a Time to Observe Our Classrooms.
If we have open spots, a Teacher-Leader will ask you to come observe our classrooms.
STEP TWO: Meet with Teacher-Leaders and Set Up a Classroom Visit for Your Child
After your observation of the classroom, we look forward to chatting with you to learn more about your child and your interest in Alyssum Montessori School. At this time, we will set up a classroom visit for your child.
STEP THREE: Invitation to Fill Out an Application
After your child’s visit is complete, a Teacher-Leader will invite you to apply online for a spot in one of our Montessori programs. Depending on enrollment, we may place your child on a waitlist or invite you to continue with enrollment.
