Annual Fund

Give the gift of lifelong learning!

Our mission at the Montessori School of Syracuse is to give our students a place to grow into their best version of themselves in a safe and nurturing environment.

We give them roots by helping them develop focus, concentration, a connection to the land, and respect for themselves and others.

We give them wings by encouraging them to think outside the box, to dream and to reach for the stars.

We are honored to be in our 27th year of making the world a better place, one child at a time.

Please help us continue to fulfill our mission by supporting the exceptional education that students receive at MSS every day. 

These watercolor images were painted by Maple Cottage Teacher, Julie Martin, who has been teaching at MSS for 20 years.
In addition to her many other skills, Julie is a visual artist.


What is the Annual Fund?

  • The MSS Annual Fund is a true difference maker at Montessori, providing critical funds for our children.
  • Every dollar contributed helps close the gap between what families pay in tuition and the actual cost of educating our children and enhances their educational experience.
  • Each year parents, grandparents, alumni, staff, and other friends of MSS contribute generously.  All our children benefit directly from those gifts, year after year.
  • Participation in the Annual Fund serves as an objective measure of the strength of our school.  High participation is an important indicator of community commitment that foundations, charitable organizations, and legislators use when evaluating schools and awarding grants.
