Please spread the word in any way you choose, to alumni and friends of the school!
The "Montessori Student Scholarship" is administered by the Oregon Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC).
The fund provides at least one scholarship per year of at least $1,000.
Any graduate of SFA, who will attend a 4-year university as a full-time undergraduate or as a graduate student, is eligible.
GPA and activities will not be deciding factors,
but financial need may be considered if a tie-breaker is needed.
Our primary purpose is to encourage reflection on Montessori education and particularly that offered at FMES/SFA. We also want to provide college financial aid to your unique students!
If you hear of anyone who would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the fund, go to http://www.oregonstudentaid.gov/.

One stop on the tour given during an Open House is our library. It really is impressive, as is our Librarian Lydia- and it is set to become more impressive within the next year. We built a new page on our website to share this gem of a resource at the Earth School. (And, as we tell everyone on a tour, our Library couldn't cover the ground it does without the parent volunteers that help make the magic happen!)
