We strive for an open, friendly and happy relationship with students and parents.




University Montessori School has a non-discriminatory admissions policy for children who are twenty months of age through kindergarten age. Parents who are interested in their child attending our school should complete and return the application form below as soon as possible. Parents are encouraged to visit the school to see the facility, meet the teachers, and observe the classes in action. School tours start in November and are given on Thursdays at 10:00am. Please call or email the office to make an appointment or with any questions you may have.


 The Admissions Process


When we receive an application and application fee, your child is immediately placed on our enrollment list. Please note that applications are processed in the order which they are received. The earlier we receive your child’s application, the greater the chances that your child will be offered a spot.


Order of Admission: There are three phases to our admissions process:


Phase One: Siblings and children of alumni are accepted first. In order to receive sibling or alumni priority, application must be received by December 1st.


Phase Two: Re-enrollment of current students continues until March 25th.


Phase Three: As spaces become available, new students are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Once a space is offered, parents have two weeks to accept the spot. If your child is not accepted for the year applied, we will contact you in November to see if you would like your child to remain on our enrollment list for the following year.
