Tuition & Tuition Assistance

Deciding to invest in a private education is a personal decision.  As you consider schools for your child, you may be asking yourself what is the true value of a Way of the Shepherd education?  Is it the strong academics?  The qualified faculty? The lifelong friends?  The immersion of Catholic faith?  These things certainly contribute to The Way of the Shepherd’s reputation as one of the Mid West’s leading Catholic Montessori schools, but our worth is best measured through the quality of our graduates.

“Education is a once in a lifetime opportunity to open children’s hearts and minds to the unbelievable wonder of the universe.”

Sir Anthony Seldon

Our mission is to provide a quality Catholic Montessori education for your children while meeting the school’s fiduciary responsibilities and maintaining the financial health of the school.  Tuition does not reflect the full cost of educating your child.  The Board of Directors at The Way of the Shepherd makes every effort to keep tuition affordable and target additional income from fundraising efforts, annual donations, and outside contributions.
