Application Procedure

Applications are accepted at any time after the birth of the child. Upon application, a book that outlines the Montessori philosophy is provided to the applicant. Applicants will not be contacted until March the year the child becomes eligible for admission. Children must be three before August 1st to enroll in the preschool. NOTE: It is the applicant's responsibility to notify the school of any changes in contact information.

Applicants can also apply to the elementary-school program if preschool is not of interest. We accept a maximum of 24 first graders into the elementary school each year, with priority given to current BMS kindergarten students.

When a class is full, applicants are placed on a waiting list in order of their application dates. Returning students, their siblings, former students, and those previously enrolled in other Montessori schools have priority over new admissions. An effort is made to balance the enrollment in each class according to sex and age.

If you would like to apply to either the preschool or the elementary school, fill out an application and return it with the application fee. We will place your child's name on our waiting list and contact you if an opening occurs.

We can not guarantee space to every applicant so please apply as early as possible to increase your chances of admission.

Application Forms - Please include $35 application fee
