Tuition & Fees

Chesapeake Montessori School is a non-profit foundation. We traditionally operate with a deficit on an annual basis, which assumes a gap between our overall expenses and the revenue generated by tuition. We rely on annual giving to bridge that gap. This allows us to keep tuition rates as low as possible. While there are varying costs associated with the different programs at our school, the estimated cost to offer an authentic, AMI recognized, AIMS accredited, Montessori education per child/teen enrolled at CMS is $18,200. The estimated cost per child/teen to operate in times of a global pandemic, considering the additional expenses incurred for PPE, compliance, and technology, is $20,900.
