Financial Aid


The Financial Aid Program at Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is designed to support the Mission of the School.

Guided by the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is a diverse community committed to educational excellence, serving students in preschool through grade 8. At our center is respect for the individual child’s development and potential.

Our carefully designed environment encourages the student’s natural curiosity. We inspire a love of independent learning and foster critical thinking by engaging students in a challenging and meaningful curriculum.

By encouraging personal responsibility, leadership, and respect for self and others, we teach children to be thoughtful and confident citizens of the School and the world.

Since opening in 1965, in keeping with the Mission of providing educational excellence to a diverse community of students, BHMS has maintained a strong commitment to offering need-based financial aid. Financial Aid is awarded to make a BHMS education accessible for students from a range of economic backgrounds. Financial Aid awards are based on demonstrated need and funds available from the school. Financial Aid is a financial grant awarded by the school to a family.

Brooklyn Heights Montessori School has an institutional commitment to the principles of diversity and inclusivity. In that spirit, and in accordance with the law, BHMS does not discriminate in the administration of Financial Aid policies on the basis of race, religion, creed, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, national origin, or any other characteristic.

Please contact Elise Mattia, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, if you have questions.
