Did you know that there are schools willing to contract with students and training centers to cover the cost of tuition? This is the time of year that schools are starting to look for teachers to invest in for their upcoming academic years.
The details of each sponsorship will vary from school to school, so you’ll want to reach out to the school and see what their terms will be.
We hope that all interested students will seriously consider researching sponsorship opportunities available to them. It is a valuable source of financial assistance in addition to scholarships, payment plans, and private loans. Even if you don’t see a local school listed, you should reach out to schools in your area and let them know of your interest in Montessori training and your willingness to work with them in exchange for a tuition sponsorship.
You can see a full listing of the sponsorships schools have requested we advertise on our sponsorship page.
We’d love to partner with your school! Students at the Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies are well-supported and well-prepared, with dedicated time for classroom observation and practice teaching during their course of study.
Montessori schools across the country trust us to train their chosen candidates at SIMS. Many of our students have experience as assistants in Montessori classrooms, and are preparing to move into lead teacher roles.
When you send a teacher to SIMS, upon successful completion of our training course, they will have met the AMI standards, and must have demonstrated a deep understanding of educational theory, child development, observation techniques, and use and presentation of the Montessori materials. No other Montessori training comes close to providing such a systematic, rigorous course of study. It pays off: by hiring and training AMI-certified Montessori teachers, your school will be providing the best, most authentic Montessori experience available to children, and will appeal to parents looking for the rigor of the AMI standard.
Any school that sponsors a student for training with SIMS receives $500 off the student’s tuition.
If you’re interested in sponsoring a student, please fill out this form with more information so we can list your school on our sponsorship page. We encourage students to apply for sponsorships directly so you can screen potential candidates and find the right fit for your school.
