Submit an Application
Please complete an application for admission and return this to Greenspring Montessori School with the $75 application fee.
You can apply online here. Note that you will be required to create a ParentsWeb account to submit an application – which will allow you to save your application and complete it later, and also to avoid duplicating efforts when completing your family’s data later, during the Enrollment process.
If your child has had previous school experience, please forward previous school records. You can download the Request for School Records and the Common Referral Form (PreK-1 or Grades 2-12) here. Please also forward any recent diagnostic assessments.
What Happens Next
Parent Meeting & Student Visit for Older Applicants
Children four years and older are required to schedule a one-on-one, classroom visit with a Montessori guide. Elementary and Middle School applicants are required to spend either a morning or an entire school day with us in order to experience a “day in the life” of a Montessori student. We ask parents of visiting students to schedule a parent meeting with the Admissions office prior to the student visit.
Attend a Level Overview Workshop
It is important that you have a strong understanding of the philosophy and practices of Montessori. All parents are required to attend a level overview for the level your child will be entering. You can learn more about our Level Overview Program and the dates on which we offer overviews at this link.
Letters regarding acceptance of your child into Greenspring Montessori School will be mailed on Friday, February 20, 2015. Acceptances will be made on an ongoing basis until programs fill.
Your child’s space will only be reserved upon receipt of the online enrollment contract and initial tuition deposit. Online enrollment for offers made on Friday, February 20, 2015 must be submitted by Friday, March 6, 2015. Online enrollment for offers made after February 20 must be submitted within two weeks of receipt.
Admission & Enrollment Policies
Please note that, once you are enrolled, you will be required to attend level overviews as your child moves up from the Toddler Program to Children’s House, then on to Elementary, and then on to the Adolescent Program. This is to ensure that parents know what to expect at each level, and have the opportunity to gauge in detail whether it is right for their child. You can read about these programs and plan for the dates on which they occur at this link.
