Joliet Montessori School is a tuition-based, not-for-profit, private, independent school that has been serving children since 1966. Tuition rates vary depending on the program and the individual child care needs of your family. For a current tuition & fee schedule please click here.
Families are expected to financially support the JMS Annual Fund, at their own individual comfort level. Supporting the JMS Annual Fund allows our students to experience enrichments in their school life. Participation is celebrated at all levels of giving — choose the area of school life to enhance with your donation dollars!
Additional voluntary fundraising opportunities are made available throughout the school year.
We encourage you to schedule a visit to see for yourself what sets Montessori apart from traditional education and how we can help you choose Joliet Montessori for your child and for your family.
