Tuition, Fees, and Financial Assistance

Sunstone is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational institution. Tuition and fees are kept as low as possible while continuing to attract and retain outstanding teachers and provide excellent, AMI Montessori education.

Financial Assistance

We believe that diversity breeds strength in our community. In recognizing and celebrating our differences we create a culture of inclusion and acceptance among our students, staff, and families. To encourage a diverse socio-economic community, we offer need-based assistance. This year we have awarded $61,300 in tuition assistance to 11% of our student body.

For additional information and a financial assistance application, please contact Cathy Elliott. Thank you.
