It all begins here.

The first years for our children are so vital.

It’s when the foundations of an expansive purposeful life are laid down, and where they are prepared for what comes next. We have the extraordinary opportunity in the choices we make as parents/caregivers and educators to give them the building blocks they need to pursue their own learning. Not just in their formative years, but for life.

GTMS is an incredible school – I drop my son off every day knowing he is in the best learning environment supported by wonderful teachers, peers, and administrators. Current Parent

The Admissions Process

Greene Towne’s admissions process begins in the fall of the year preceding enrollment and includes a School Tour. Below outlines our admissions process and some important dates. 

Step 1: Schedule a School Tour 

It is important to us that families gain an understanding about Greene Towne and the Montessori philosophy through a school tour before applying. Small group tours for adults only are offered on weekday mornings and last about an hour. Tours offer an introduction to the Montessori curriculum and the Greene Towne community, and the opportunity to see our young students actively engaged in Montessori classrooms. To see our tour dates and to schedule your visit, please complete our inquiry form.

Step 2: Submit Your Child’s Application 

Once a family has taken a school tour, families may submit an application for their child. 

Applications are accepted throughout the year with priority admission decisions for the upcoming school year for children whose applications are submitted by December 1. After December 1, applications are considered on a rolling basis as space permits. 

For families who wish to apply for mid-year admission or on a rolling basis in the spring or summer, we encourage you to contact us immediately for a school tour so you may apply as soon as possible.

We look forward to getting to know your family.  Apply here!

Step 3: Child Visit

Once a complete application is received, the third step is a visit for you and your child with members of our Montessori faculty. A member of our enrollment team will contact families to schedule the visit. Child visits for families who have applied by December 1 are scheduled for the following January.

Step 4: Admissions Decision

Families of Primary applicants are notified of admissions decisions starting in early February and Toddler House applicants are notified starting in late February.

Tuition and Affording Greene Towne

Greene Towne Montessori School has offered tuition assistance since its start in 1966 as part of the founders’ vision for a “racially, religiously, and economically integrated school.” Our Tuition Assistance program is designed to provide tuition assistance to those children who would be unable to attend without financial help. Tuition assistance is based on a family’s demonstrated need and the availability of funds. Admissions decisions are need-blind and all families who feel they may qualify for financial assistance are encouraged to inquire. Applications for re-enrolling families are due by January 1, and for families of new applicants by February 1. If materials are not submitted on the designated dates, families may be put on a tuition assistance waitlist. 

Greene Towne is switching our Tuition Assistance service and the new details will be posted in September. Please stay tuned for the new details and instructions.
