How To Complete An Application


The Pennington Montessori School application process is designed to give parents a full understanding of the school and what it has to offer, as well as answer any questions along the way.


The application process follows a few important steps:

1. Take a tour

We recommend that all prospective parents take a guided tour of our campus to gain an understanding of the environment their child will be experiencing, as well as to meet our faculty and staff. Click here to schedule a tour.

2. Submit an application

Applications can be completed and submitted online here. When submitting your application, please indicate your choice of program in order of preference 1, 2 and 3, as all programs may not be available at the time of your submission. If you do not see your desired program schedule listed, please Contact Us [LINK] to make alternative arrangements. Please note there is a non-refundable $50 application fee per child.

Complete An Application

Once your application has been received, you will be contacted to set up an interview time for your child.


3. Interview with a teacher

The in-person interview process enables us to get to know your child, assess their readiness for school and allow them to experience a classroom firsthand. We carefully consider many factors in determining the appropriate placement of your child (such as age, gender, personality, program attending, and availability of your selected program), as we strive to create balanced classrooms that ensure an optimal multiage environment. Please note that for this reason, the teacher you and your child meet with may not be their teacher when they begin school.

4. Receive notification

You can expect notification of your child’s admission status within two weeks of their interview.
