Tuition and Fees

A Montessori education is an investment in your most priceless asset—your child. We have provided information about our tuition and fees to help you plan financially. Please contact us if you have questions.

We offer monthly payment plans on request as well as sibling discounts. We also offer a 5% tuition savings to every applicant who pays their tuition in full prior to the start of class.

Tuition Payment

SVMA is excited to introduce a new feature to our website! We are now able to accept payments for application, tuition, registration, lunch bunch, enrichment, supplies/activity, early bird or "drop-ins", and other fees through our website via PayPal!

Please note that SVMA does add a 3.6% online charge for using this method of payment. PayPal will add these fees to the total payment upon checkout. You may pay via PayPal even if you do not have a PayPal account. PayPal will accept credit cards or eChecks for payment, but the processing fee applies to both.

If you choose to use PayPal, once you submit the form below you will go to the PayPal site. On the form below, you will see fields for my payment is for and payment amount. In these fields, please enter what you are paying for and the amount due. On the PayPal page, you will see fields for description and price per item. In the description field, please specify for what you are paying and in the price per item field, please enter the amount you are paying. Thank you in advance!

If you would prefer to avoid the online charge, please feel free to write a check payable to Spring Valley Montessori Academy or set up automatic bill pay through your bank or bring cash into the office.
