Steps of Admissions Process
We welcome inquiries from prospective families throughout the year. Enrollment for the following school year opens to new students in February, and families are encouraged to apply as early as possible to secure a spot. We offer rolling admissions and consider applications throughout the school year as space is available.
The first step of the Admissions Process is to schedule a personal tour of one of our campuses. This visit includes observing our classrooms in action, exploring the Montessori curriculum, and meeting with the Director of Academics & Admissions. Parents are encouraged to keep this visit adults only.
For prospective Elementary students, a morning to shadow in the classroom is scheduled following the tour.
After the personal tour and shadow date, if applicable, we invite you to complete an application for your child.
When classrooms have reached capacity, accepted applicants are placed on our wait list. When a spot opens, new students are selected in the order in which they applied. We will contact you when a space becomes available. Should a spot not open before April of that school year, your child’s registration will roll over to the next school year.
The Admissions Office considers applicants on the basis of readiness for school and potential to succeed in our learning environment. Preschool students (ages 3-4) must be toilet trained prior to starting school. Students applying to enter at the Elementary level without previous Montessori experience should show strong potential to work and learn independently and interact respectfully with their teachers and peers.
