Do you offer financial aid?

Mustard Seed School has a mission to remove barriers to learning, including financial barriers. We have an innovative Sliding Scale Tuition model. Sliding Scale Tuition is based on the principle that a family’s financial commitment should be in equitable proportion to its financial resources. Sliding Scale Tuition is indexed to your family’s unique financial profile, not solely income. Need is assessed by Smart Aid and the MSS Sliding Scale Evaluation Committee. You can read more here.

Independent schools are governed by a Board of Trustees.
