Admissions

Welcome to Hilltop Montessori School. Every year we look forward to the prospect of new families joining Hilltop Montessori School as the school comes to life through our students, staff, and families. We believe, in choosing Hilltop and a Montessori education, students are provided with the critical thinking and problem-solving skills, confidence, and self-awareness essential for success in our rapidly changing world.

Whether exploring your child’s first step into school or thinking about new options for an older student, we invite you to explore the information here on our website, request a brochure/admissions packet, schedule a personal visit and tour and/or join us for an open house. The admissions process is designed to give you and your child every opportunity to experience our school and come to know what this education looks, and feels like.
