If you are unable to attend an informational meeting, contacts us and we’ll make arrangements for a tour. This hour and a half meeting is designed just for adults, there will be another time when you can bring your child for a visit.

Step 2: Submit an Application

We believe that seeing the children in action in the classroom is the most important step in understanding Montessori education and deciding if our school is a good match for your child. After attending a “Getting To Know Salem Montessori School” meeting, you may request an admissions application. In February, we begin the enrollment process for the following school year.

Complete the online application form and mail or drop off the application processing fee. The fee is non-refundable and does not guarantee a space.

Step 3: New Families Schedule a Child Visit

Once the application has been completed, we will schedule a visit with your child at school.

Step 4: Complete the Enrollment Contract if your child is accepted

If a space is offered to your family, the enrollment contract and deposit will be due within two weeks to hold your space.  If space is unavailable, you may choose to be placed in the waiting list.
