Affording an MSL Education

A Montessori School of Louisville education is an investment in your child’s future. It is also a significant financial investment. It was important to our founding families that finances not be the reason a family chooses not to apply at MSL. On average, our tuition per child accounts for 8.5% of  the average family household income in our area.

Tuition Assistance Program provides need-based tuition support to families who would otherwise not be able to attend Montessori School of Louisville. Assistance decisions are made by our Tuition Assistance Committee, independently of admissions decisions. The Tuition Assistance Program is open to students of any race, creed, sexual orientation, and national or ethnic origin.

Student Tuition Assistance

Each year, MSL Administration allocates funds from the budget to support student tuition assistance. Families may submit an online application for consideration via FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. Tuition assistance applications are due by March 1st. The Tuition Assistance Committee evaluates all applications and determines awards. Awards are based upon the applicant’s financial need, as indicated by the FACTS Grant Aid Assessment. Additional criteria may include student retention and growth in enrollment at a specific level. Tuition assistance awards are announced to families no later than May 1st. Tuition assistance awards are evaluated annually, requiring families to reapply each year for which they desire assistance.


The deadline for applying for tuition assistance each year is March 15th. Tuition Assistance Applications are submitted online to FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. If you have questions about this process, please contact Jennifer Cattell at
