The Mayapple School offers creative, place-based education for children ages 2.5 – 6. Our multi-age classroom offers a vibrant environment for project based learning, process art experiences, nature explorations, rich story times, and intentional dramatic play opportunities. If attending The Mayapple School would be a great fit for your child, but not a great fit for your family’s finances, a scholarship might be available for your child. Our scholarships are need based, largely on family income, though extenuating circumstances are also considered.

The scholarship application for any of our summer camp programs can be found here: Summer Camp Scholarship Application

The scholarship application for our 2018/2019 school year program can be found here: Scholarshipapplication2018

Further opportunities for tuition reduction are available through “Work Trade,” bartering goods or services that support The Mayapple School in exchange for credits towards your child’s tuition. Families may apply for both scholarships and Work Trade opportunities. The work trade application for our 2018/2019 school year program can be found here: Work Trade Application

Please note that scholarships and work trade agreements are awarded only to the extend that funds are raised. All awards are made possible by the generosity of our donors and the hard work of board members and other fundraisers. Thank you!

Applications can be mailed to The Mayapple School, PO box 192 Newport, VA 24128. Applications received by June 4 will be given first consideration. Please contact melissa at mayapple dot com with any questions.
