We invite you to take a look at our website, learn how our school engages each student as an individual, read about the benefits of Montessori education, and review our Admissions Process. Most of all, we invite you to see the magic at Summit in person. If you have questions, please give us a call or submit an Inquiry Form.
Schedule a tour and classroom observation.
When you come for a tour of our school, you will also have an opportunity to observe in a classroom. Please contact the Admissions Office to schedule a school tour and classroom observation. During the school year, tours are scheduled at in the mornings, Monday through Friday. You can also tour during the summer months, although classes are not in session.
Complete an application.
Please submit your completed application to Summit’s Admissions Office with a non-refundable application fee of $50. The link to apply is provided by the admissions office after an initial inquiry period. The Admissions Office will schedule a classroom visit for your child once the application is received.
If your child is currently enrolled at another school, we also request that you send the AISNE teacher evaluation and Records Release form to your child’s school. These forms are available for download while you are completing the online application below. Once the form is completed, the current school will return the AISNE form and records directly to Summit.
If you are interested in requesting financial assistance, you will need to submit a Financial Aid application HERE. Financial aid information can be found on our website.
Visit the school with your child.
We invite both parents and children to visit the school as part of the application process. While children will have a chance to spend time in a classroom, parents may participate in a interview with a member of the Admissions Office.
Applicants for the Beginners Program (students who will be 18 months to 3 years of age on September 1) visit with their parent or guardian for approximately 45 minutes. (The parent interview will be scheduled for a different time.)
Applicants for Children’s House (students who will be 3-6 years of age on September 1) visit a classroom for 45-60 minutes. Applicants to the Children’s House who are under three at the time of their visit may have their parent stay in the classroom while they work with a teacher. Older applicants will visit alone while the parent interview is held. Kindergarten visits will be for one hour.
Applicants for the Lower and Upper Elementary programs (students entering grades 1-6 in September) will visit from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The Admissions Decision
Summit will make admissions decisions by March 10 and mail contracts to accepted students on that date. Contracts and non-refundable deposits ($2,500/child) will be due back to Summit three weeks later. (Students accepted after this initial admissions window will have two weeks to return the contract and non-refundable deposit to Summit once offered admission.) Enrollment contracts become binding on May 1. Enrollment contracts offered to families between May and January become binding the date it is signed and returned to the school.
