Good Schools … Make Strong Neighborhoods!
Our school was founded in 1995 – so we are still in the early stages of building a strong Annual Fund. This is essential as we seek to build an endowment that is the foundation of a stable school. Please send your contribution to:

"Angels Unknown" is a beautiful and very personal way of sponsoring a child’s Montessori education.
This is a Tuition Sponsorship Program for children of low income families. Our donors have various and personal reasons for becoming an "Angel Unknown."
Some want to make sure a Montessori education is available to those who could otherwise not afford it…. some want to give the gift of a Catholic education rooted in Montessori principles…. and others want to help a particular family in need of an educational alternative.
We need your help. Please join us in this unique mission… to transform a child’s life with the gift of a Montessori education.
How did "Angels Unknown" begin?
A Holy Rosary parish family wanted to pay the tuition for a family unable to afford it. This was the seed that blossomed – into a successful tuition sponsorship program.
Our donors believe that a Montessori education has a life-changing impact – and that it should not be an option only for the middle class or privileged, but also for low-income families in Greater Cleveland.
Those who give….
A family or corporation commits to sponsoring a particular child for a three-year cycle of Montessori education. You choose the level of sponsorship – and receive a profile of your child along with regular progress reports. You may meet the child and family you sponsor or remain anonymous.
"The Montessori School at Holy Rosary guides each child’s growth in character and personal qualities that are so essential in becoming a contributing member of our society… As sponsers, we get to support families committed to excellence in their children – and to know directly what difference it makes!"
- Karen & John Nestor
"For Cleveland city children, this Montessori school is a haven of learning, a place of enrichment and the foundation of life. Nowhere else is this available and affordable to inner city children… If you work for a corporation with a Matching Gift program, you can double your donation. A truly win-win situation."
– Susan Reda & Robert Monroe
Those who receive…
We select highly motivated families who meet low income guidelines. They commit to at least a three-year cycle of education at the Montessori School at Holy Rosary. Parents must pay a portion of the tuition, according to their financial ability.
Parents say ...
- "Our children have a great ability to learn – but can’t get what they need in public schools. On our own, we can’t afford to pay for Montessori."
- "The Montessori environment has helped my daughter become independent and grow spiritually. She has become a young lady, confident and mature."
