Timeline & Tuition

Philly Montessori follows a rolling admissions process, and accepts new students as spaces become available. We encourage families that are interested in joining our school to contact us through the contact form or email, and to join us for an Open House in order to become familiar with our school, our teachers, and our environment.

Admissions Timline

1 - Submit Application

Applications for Admissions are accepted on a rolling admissions timeline. Please indicate on your application which program and which schedule you are applying for. If you are applying for any year other than the 23-24 school year, please indicate this on your application.

Please note: a $75 application fee must be submitted in order for your application to be processed.

2 - Attend an Open House

Please see our Calendar for details on the upcoming open houses, and please join our mailing list in order to receive direct invitations to the open houses.

3 - Join us for a Family Visit

Once an Application for Admissions is submitted, and there is an available space in our program for your child, we will invite your whole family to join us for a school visit.

4- Enrollment

Admissions decisions will be made first, in the order that Applications are received, and then based on class age and gender ratio needs.

Admissions decisions will be emailed in February and March. Admissions decisions will either be “accepted”, or “waitlisted”. Families that have been accepted will be given 2 weeks to make an enrollment decision, at which point spaces will be offered to those on the waitlist. Priority admissions is always given to siblings, and families needing Full Day or Extended Full Day care.
