About Our Accessible Tuition Model

We believe that educational opportunities should be available to all families, regardless of financial means. We are committed to maintaining a student body that truly reflects the diversity of the Fort Smith community.  


Hollyhock does not have one tuition rate –  instead we have five different tuition rates. The tuition rate for each family is calculated from the family’s annual income with the intended result that families pay a similar percentage of their annual income to share the collective cost of the program as a whole.  This is a bit more complicated than posting a standard tuition rate, but we think the outcome is worth the trouble.  


Please feel free to reach out with any questions.  We're here to help!

A few notes about tuition:


  • Aside from a $100 enrollment fee, our tuition rates are the true cost of our program (8:30-3:15).  There are no additional fees or fundraising expectations. 

  • We reserve a certain number of spots at each rate, and rates range from $4500 to $8700.

  • All kindergarten students are eligible for EFA vouchers in 2024-25.  You can find more information here: Family EFA Vouchers

  • For preschool students, we accept vouchers from the Child Care Assistance Program.  Families with an annual income that falls within the limits listed below are encouraged to apply for CCAP.  We reserve 1/3 of our spots for families who qualify. You can find more information here: Child Care Assistance Program


The needs of mankind are universal. Our means of meeting them create the richness and diversity of the planet. The Montessori child should come to relish the texture of that diversity.
- Dr. Maria Montessori
