Tuition Assistance

The Montclair Cooperative School actively seeks to build a student body that is culturally, socially and economically diverse. The goal of our tuition assistance program is to help close the gap between the total cost of a Co-op education and what a family can afford.

How to Apply

The Montclair Cooperative School understands that the decision to send your child to an Independent School is a financial commitment and an investment in your child’s future.

Our tuition assistance program is designed to help close the gap between what a family can afford and the tuition and supports our mission to create a rich and diverse community of learners.

The tuition assistance program is available to students in grades Pre-K through eighth and awards are based solely upon demonstrated financial need.

Although the Co-op is not always able to meet the financial needs of every family, we encourage our families to apply if circumstances suggest that financial assistance might be needed to enroll.

You may apply for tuition assistance through TADS a third party service provider.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Donna Ellwood, Finance Manager, by email at or at 973-783-4955 x 212.

The Montclair Cooperative School understands the personal and sensitive nature of financial documents and keeps all such information strictly confidential.
