Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in our school. We believe that we have a unique learning environment for young children and their families. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to the opportunity to talk with you.

Step 1: Sign up for a Parent Tour.

Attend a “Getting To Know Salem Montessori School” meeting. We’ll give you a brief overview of the Montessori philosophy and curriculum.

Group tours are offered September through February. If you are unable to attend one of the tours above, contact us at 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. 

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. In February, we begin the enrollment process for the following school year. We will reach out to you if we have a space to offer.

Step 3: 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 a waiting pool.
