 What Is Your Role?

Are you being called to be a part of this growth to give more students an exciting and nurturing educational experience that goes beyond standard academics, addressing the heart and the body as well as the mind?  It may sound like a big goal, but our need breaks down into just 20 people committing to give $1,000 per month for one year, or maybe it's 10 businesses giving $25,000.

If you have not yet visited the school, our Director would love to meet with you to learn more about your passion for education, to share more of what beautiful things are happening already, and to cast the vision of all we hope for the future.

If you are ready to give now, you can use one of the two options below to donate online, or checks can be made to The Hearth Room and mailed to:

The Signatry holds a charity fund for the school, which can facilitate the donations of stocks, real estate, business interest, and other complex gifts.


What Will It Take?

With full classrooms, our operational expenses are more than covered on tuition income alone, but we are limited by the small classrooms in our current facilities, which do not allow us sufficient enrollment.

We need community support during Year 2 to bring us to long-term financial autonomy in Year 3.  The total need is $250,000, which will allow us to:

  • Bring in a dynamic Head of School to manage day-to-day excellent functioning and begin to implement additional programs, such as 4-H participation, Bible quizzing, political and entrepreneurial programs, and after-school enrichment.

  • Provide in-depth, high quality Montessori training to team members

  • Make minor improvements to the current space to improve functional ease and safety, and allow room for a few more students.

  • Enlist professionals for our space expansion process

  • Market to completely enroll two full-size classrooms in 24-25

Pathway to Sustainable Growth

  • Phase 1: Get the school up and running.  Done!

  • Phase 2: Get the right people in the right seats by growing our team and getting them excellent training in the Montessori method.

  • Phase 3: Open a larger physical space with full-size classrooms.


Students are already on the 23-24 wait list, and we plan to spend the next year preparing for fully enrolled full-size classes for the 24-25 school year.  This will put the school in a very strong financial situation, poised for great momentum.
