Discovering Their Inherent Potential at Near North

Our Guiding Principles

Near North creates curious, motivated, and accomplished lifelong learners through an environment and Montessori approach unique to our school. We achieve these outcomes by adhering to the following principles:

“Near North has taught me everything that I need to know going into high school. They taught me how to advocate for myself, how to be independent, how to problem solve in uncomfortable situations, and how to be a great all-around human being by using integrity.”

If something is happening with students, classroom dynamics, or the parent community — we are ready to help.

 


 

Payments, Giving, and Financial Aid

Payments, Fees, and Charitable Giving

An independent school is an investment in excellence. Tuition and fees are vital sources of revenue to our school and along with charitable giving, fund its operating expenses. We strive to keep tuition as low as possible while continuing to attract and retain outstanding teachers and to provide the highest quality education for our students.

Financial Aid and Economic Diversity

We believe that economic diversity contributes to a strong and healthy school community, and therefore NNM has committed to providing eligible families with financial assistance. Applications are reviewed confidentially by the Financial Aid Review Group and are considered separately from admissions.

Financial aid funding comes primarily from school fundraising activities, generous gifts from parents and other community supporters, as well as the school’s operating budget.

Apply For Financial Aid

Families must apply for financial aid each school year with updated financial and family information and
all outstanding financial obligations for the current school year be paid in full. Applications for Financial Aid may be submitted from December 13-March 13 for the 2021-22 school year.

Questions regarding the financial aid process should be directed to the school’s Finance and Operations Director.
