Tuition Assistance/Sliding Scale
We offer tuition assistance for families who qualify.
We are a nut-free facility. Children who stay all day bring their own lunch to school, or can order from Gourmet Gorilla and have it delivered to the school.
After School Care
We offer before and after school care (as late as 6:00 p.m.) for children ages three and up.
Alcuin Montessori promotes tolerance and acceptance throughout our school and provides a safe space as a support network for all. We will create an environment in which it is safe for people to express themselves and their individuality without consequence or judgment. We hope to both educate and cultivate an attitude towards others marked by a generosity of spirit and acceptance, and welcome all students and families to our community.
We are recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education as a nonpublic school.
