Make an appointment for an interview. Call us between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday to Friday, and we will be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Please bring all previous records, if applicable. The interview is an opportunity for parents and the child to meet our wonderful faculty and staff here at Santa Monica Montessori School. Parents and the child are encouraged to observe classes, explore our facilities, and meet our excellent teachers. After the interview, additional enrollment forms will need to be completed and submitted before final acceptance can be determined. Parent(s) will be notified if their child has been accepted.

After your child has been accepted, a tuition contract will be offered to you. Please read contract terms carefully before signing. The tuition contract is for a school year. Please submit the signed contract along with a payment of $1500, of which $500 are non-refundable (annual registration fee) and $1000 will be applied towards your child’s tuition.

We look forward to seeing you!
