Join us for our annual CMS Auction!

February 05, 2015

Financial Aid has been one of the founding pillars and hallmarks of Cambridge Montessori School (CMS) since we opened our doors 51 years ago. The primary goal of CMS’ financial aid program is to widen, in particular, the socioeconomic profile of our community. This year, financial aid was awarded to an impressive 20% of our students, who, in turn, enrich the lives of 100% of our community.

In 2014-2015, financial aid awards totaled approximately $700,000. Though revenue from tuition is a major source of support for financial aid, we cannot meet our goal of socioeconomic diversity without a successful auction.


For many years, Cambridge Montessori School has held an auction to raise funds for financial aid. It is our biggest fundraising event and one of our biggest volunteer events. The involvement of dozens of volunteers from our parent and school body help create a fantastic event that raises thousands to help with our financial aid program.

On Saturday, March 21, 2015, please join us as we step back in time and travel from Paris to Cambodia aboard the luxurious carriages of the Orient Express. Meet us at the Elephant Walk in Cambridge at 6:00pm for an exciting evening of fun, friendship and fundraising.
