Since our founding in 1981, Montessori In The Woods has been dedicated to providing students with a structured, challenging, and nurturing environment where children are given the tools to succeed in life. Like all independent schools, we rely on a combination of tuition revenue, grants and charitable contributions from parents, alumni and former families, grandparents and friends to support our ongoing operations and strategic initiatives.

Montessori In The Woods is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. All gifts of cash or stock to MITW are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. For more information regarding your gift, please contact us at
