Tuition and Fees

Affordability

For many families, investing in an independent school education requires careful financial planning. The Montessori School of Lake Forest is committed to sustaining an economically diverse community by assisting qualified families who, without aid, have no other resources with which to meet the full cost of an education at MSLF. Each family is unique, and we are here to help you determine the best plan for this important investment.

Our Financial Aid program is need-based, not merit-based. Families who are seeking financial aid may ask for further information from the Business Office.

Tuition and Fees

Both School Year and Full Year contracts are available. Our “School Year” contract comprises a traditional school year from late-August through early-June. Our “Full Year” contract includes the school year plus the summer and “Club Days” (non-major holidays and other days such as parent-teacher conference days when “School-Year” students are not at school).

All fees and deposits are included below, and tuition is payable in full, twice-per-year or monthly via check, direct debit or credit card.
