Tuition and Financial Assistance

Tuition and Fees

Mount Madonna School’s commitment to economic justice includes our flexible tuition model providing financial assistance and scholarships to support an economically diverse student body.

Financial assistance applications are administered through FACTS Management.

You will be prompted to create a user account. Please use one account only per family. You may apply for multiple students using a single account.

Mount Madonna School’s open admission and financial assistance policies do not discriminate based on race, gender, sexual preference, ethnic origin, disability, marital status, religion, creed or similar factors. This policy applies to all areas of student concerns: admissions, athletics, educational policies, financial assistance, and other school administered programs. Mount Madonna School is committed to maintaining economic diversity within our community of families. We allocate financial grants from our operating budget, the Bernice Arnold Scholarship Endowment and special donations designated for financial assistance. Grants are based on each family’s economic need, which is assessed independently through the School and FACTS.

Enrolling your child in Mount Madonna School (MMS) is an investment in their future. We strive to provide a space where trust, cooperation and creativity abound, and where children are seen, heard and valued for the gifts they bring. We are a diverse learning community where faculty have the autonomy to bring their passion to the classroom in all its brilliance.

Thrive, grow, flourish and learn — Invest in your child’s education and future

Educating Future Leaders

“Over 25 years ago we were looking for a school for our daughter that would provide not only a well-rounded education but to partner with us to develop a good whole-balanced human being. In my mind, this included characteristics of compassion, love, morality, emotional intelligence, fairness and social engagement. We found Mount Madonna and it paid off in spades. I am very proud of who my daughter has become. We need institutions like Mount Madonna School to thrive so as to be a beacon.” – Alumni Parent – David Collier
