Our Primary Program offers financial assistance through sliding scale tuition to 1st catchment zone students only. Discounted tuition is dependent upon funds available. Please use the chart above to determine whether you are Income A, B, C, or D. Then answer the following question.
If you are income A, B, or C, City Garden requires you to submit tax forms in order to apply for the sliding scale tuition discount.
The tuition rates and income guidelines above are for the 2018-2019 school year. Rates will increase for the 2019-2020 school year by 2%. Contact the school for the most up-to-date sliding scale tuition rates.

1. Application fee of $25
2. Original birth certificate of applicant
3. Up-to-date immunization and health forms
4. Two original proofs of residence from within the last month. These should be originals, not copies (gas bill, electric bill, cable bill, for example).

Because so many documents must be originals, you are welcome to bring them in person, have them immediately processed, and take them home again. If originals must be mailed, you can pick them up in person at your convenience. You may pay the $25 application fee by cash, check, or PayPal. If you pay by cash, deliver it to the school to the Admissions Coordinator, Liz. If you pay by check, make it payable to City Garden School. You can mail the check to City Garden Montessori School, 1618 Tower Grove Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110, or deliver it in person.
