We understand that you have a lot of choices when it comes to finding the right educational environment for your child. If you’re on this page, hopefully it means the information on our other pages appeals to your personal goals and philosophy and you’re ready to consider joining our community. We want to make that process simple for you!
On this page we share our application requirements and admissions calendar (so you can understand where you are in the cycle). Don’t forget to look at our Tuition and Financial Aid page, and our online applications are always available. Typically we would invite you right over to check out Montessori in action for yourself. At this time, we offer personal Zoom appointments as well as personal on-campus tours for prospective families. Please give us a call (919-489-9045) or submit an inquiry to schedule an appointment!
