Fundraising Initiatives

The New School’s revenue is based entirely on tuition and on fundraising initiatives we hold throughout the year. To avoid restrictions on our operations, the school does not receive any external sources of income, such as state or institutional grants. While tuition fees cover our basic operational costs, we rely on the generosity and support of parents and volunteers to meet the additional needs and demands of maintaining the highest standards of education at our school.

Additional money raised by your fundraising efforts go toward:

  • Extra activities and enhancement programs for our classrooms
  • Building fund and school beautification projects
  • Teacher enrichment programs
  • Scholarship fund

Please check back soon, as this page will have links to our various fundraising programs and events. We will also feature links to several ongoing, passive fundraising initiatives such as the Box Tops for Education and also the Harris Teeter VIC card linking information.

You can support The New School Montessori Center in several ways:


We welcome volunteers for any aspect of school operations. To find out more about volunteer opportunities, please contact us using the volunteer page or via email.


Please consider a donation to the school. Use your credit card to donate via PayPal. It’s safe, secure, and convenient.

Alternatively, you may send a check or money order to our mail address (see below right or the contact page). Be sure to indicate “donation” on your check.

Purchase Merchandise from Amazon

When you purchase from Amazon via links we provide, the school receives a small commission. Shopping this way is exactly the same as your regular Amazon shopping experience and costs the same. Click here to access the School Amazon Store.

Support School Events

Throughout the year, the school holds special events. Our annual Fall Festival celebrates a theme each year. International Night is an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in other cultures. These events and others enhance curriculum and help to build our school community. Sponsors, donations, and volunteers for these events are always welcome. Check the school calendar for dates of upcoming events, and please contact the school to help us with the event.

Thank you for your support!
