Financial Aid at Hampton Roads International Montessori School has a two-fold purpose, to provide deserving students the opportunity for a high quality education which otherwise might be unobtainable for them; and provide HRIMS with a student body reflecting a broad social and economic mix. For these goals to be achieved, it is essential the ability to pay the full tuition not be the deciding factor in determining whether or not a promising young student may attend Hampton Roads International Montessori School.

Hampton Roads International Montessori School subscribes to the principles and services of Independent School Management’s FAST Aid system, which provides, at the request of parents, a financial analysis based on the confidential statement of need. FAST reports provide a point of departure for HRIMS on making all final decisions on Financial Aid awards. FAST processes applications from December through July, but forms should be filled out online NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 20TH to be received by HRIMS in time for priority consideration. Promptness in meeting deadlines is vital. Funds are not reserved for families whose application or tax forms are received late. Financial aid awards are re-evaluated on a yearly basis, and parents are required to file an annual FAST Aid application.
