Admissions Process

Scholarship

The VMS Annual Scholarship Fund makes it possible for Versailles Montessori School to offer a great educational foundation to families in the area that would normally not be able to afford it.

It has been the desire of Tony Guagliardo, founder of VMS, to make Montessori education available to as many people as possible. After 30 years, it has become a reality. VMS has a spot for a toddler (18months - 3 years) scholarship placement.

If you are interested in providing your child exceptional care and a strong foundation for academics, plus social and emotional development, but cannot afford the full tuition, please follow our application process.

The VMS Annual Scholarship Fund Committee will review all applications and make a decision based on need and parameters set forth by the committee.

Versailles Montessori School does not discriminate with regard to its student enrollment or employment procedures. VMS accepts students and staff without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin.

Scholarship Application Process

First fill out the Application of Interest, ensuring you indicate your interest in applying for the scholarship in the appropriate section. This can be found on our website under Admissions. Then submit a hard copy by mail or email a scanned copy.

After completing the VMS Application of Interest process, you will be contacted by email with the scholarship requirements and the link for the financial application.

Applying for the scholarship does not guarantee enrollment.

Versailles Montessori School does not discriminate with regard to its student enrollment or employment procedures. VMS accepts students and staff without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin. VMS may, however, in the exercise of its sole and inferred discretion, deny enrollment or suspend a child's enrollment if it is determined that the child or the child's parent(s) are not abiding by the rules and/or policies of VMS or if the child's enrollment or continued enrollment would be detrimental to the interest of VMS, its staff, or students.
