Tuition Assistance With OSMS


The Ocean State Montessori School provides a limited amount of tuition assistance each year. Tuition assistance decisions are determined on a need basis with the average award being between $500 to $1500 per year.

The Ocean State Montessori School does not discriminate in the administration of educational programs, school policies, admissions procedures or tuition assistance awards.

The Ocean State Montessori School uses Smart Aid to process tuition assistance applications. Applications for returning students need to be filed by February 5, 2018. Applications for new students (those beginning in September 2018) need to be filed by March 1, 2018. For instructions on how to apply for tuition assistance using the Smart Aid system please download the below Smart Aid Online Instructions files.

Please note that 2017 W2s for parents as well as 2016 tax returns need to be submitted to Smart Aid by the deadlines above. Failure to provide this information directly to Smart Aid will result in ineligibility to be considered for financial aid.

Applications must be submitted online. Smart Aid instructions and OSMS specific settings and guidelines can be downloaded below. Click here to apply.
