There are a variety of ways to fund your education at SIMS. Please review our scholarship opportunities, tuition discounts, and payment plans to determine what might be the best fit for you.
In addition to scholarships you may be able to find through your own independent research, we maintain an active list of scholarship opportunities that may be helpful to SIMS training candidates. Check it out here.
We offer early bird discounts for those who can get their applications in before cut-off deadlines. If you’re considering approaching a school to sponsor your participation in our course, please be sure to let them know also have school sponsorship discounts available.
We know enrolling in our training course is a significant investment (one we think is worth it!). Our payment plans allow you to schedule your payments in the best way you see fit, with monthly and quarterly installment options available. Read more above.
Discounts For Your School
Are you currently a teacher at a Montessori school? If you’d like to encourage your school to sponsor you for training at SIMS, keep in mind that any sponsoring school receives $500 off each sponsored student’s tuition.
Additionally, if your school referred you to us, we will send them $100 once you’ve completed the first 90 days of the training course (please be sure you or your school tells us that you’ve been referred!).
Early Bird Discounts
We offer early bird discounts for those who can get their applications in before these cut-off deadlines:
- Extra Early Bird (by April 26, 2019): Tuition reduced by $500.
- Early Bird (by May 15, 2019): Tuition reduced by $250.
Your application must be completed and acceptance must be finalized by the applicable early bird date. Tuition discounts will be taken from December tuition installments (or final installments, where not applicable).
