SVMS is a mission driven, non-public school. Part of our mission is that our program be available to all families no matter their financial means. Each year we offer a certain percentage of financial aid to families in need. Therefore, it is not uncommon for us to operate on a tight budget and some years with a deficit.
The reality is that the cost of each child’s education is more than the annual tuition fee. The Annual Fund Drive is a necessary part of bridging that gap. We prefer not to increase tuition, but rather actively build our Annual Fund.
Why support SVMS?
- We are the only authentic Montessori school in WNC that serves ages 3 to 6th grade.
- We are a community of committed teachers and parents, who are both loving and supportive.
- The Montessori approach is designed to help children build within themselves the foundations for a lifetime of learning.
- Our classroom atmosphere encourages social interaction for cooperative learning, peer teaching, and emotional development.
