Choosing Greene Towne
Easy as 1-2-3

The Admissions Process

The admissions process at Greene Towne Montessori School begins in the fall of the year preceding enrollment and includes an Admissions Open House in late October.

 

Step 1

The first step is a parent tour. Tours are scheduled for the morning and last about one and a half hours and are offered from mid-October through mid-December on pre-scheduled Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 9:00 am.

 

Step 2

The second step is submission of an application including the Child Profile Questionnaire. While we do not have an application deadline, we advise that applications be submitted by early December to ensure consideration for enrollment the following September.

 

Step 3

The third step for applicants to our Primary School is a visit for your child with one of our Montessori teachers. Toddler House applicants are invited for a classroom visit if the child fits the necessary classroom balance for the intended year of enrollment.

 

Families of Primary School applicants are notified of admissions decisions in February; Toddler House applicants are notified in March.

 

Financial Aid

Greene Towne offers tuition assistance to families based on financial need and availability of funds. In order to ensure fairness and objectivity in the distribution of Financial Aid, applications are made through the School and Student Service for Financial Aid, a service of the National Association of Independent Schools. To be considered, Financial Aid applications must be submitted by January 2nd for returning families and February 1st for new families. Financial Aid is awarded on a yearly basis.

 

A Diverse Community

Greene Towne Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation or ancestry in the employment of staff, admission of students, granting of Financial Aid, or the administration of educational policies.
