How To Apply
Our three-step application process for the 2021-2022 Academic Year is below. Only those families who have completed all three steps will be considered for admission..
After we have reviewed your application, you will be contacted to schedule a tour of the classroom. This tour is for parents only, and allows you the opportunity to become more familiar with our program.
Once you have attended a tour, you will be contacted to set up a child visit, during which your child will interact with the Montessori Materials in a classroom setting.
Applications are due no later than January 31st, 2021.
Decision letters will be mailed by February 15th, 2021. Upon written notice of approval, a non-refundable deposit of $2,800 is due, which is applied toward the year's tuition. Deposits must be received no later than February 28th, 2021. Parents of children who have been placed on our waiting list will be contacted as space becomes available.
Register for Mindful Parenting Class
Spring Session Dates TBD
In an effort to maintain the continued health or our teachers and students, we regret that we will not be offering Mindful Parenting this fall.
You can find virtual parenting classes of a similar philosophy, led by our director Christine Carrig at The Family Flow.
Please check back this spring, as we hope to resume in-person Mindful Parenting classes beginning in March!
Register for Summer at CMS
Summer at CMS is only offered to current students and students enrolled in an upcoming Academic Year.
For these students, registration forms are made available each Spring.
