Application for Admission


Thank you for considering CMMS for your child’s middle school education. All previous educational backgrounds – private school, home school and public school – are welcome.

We encourage all interested students and families to schedule an observational visit during school hours to appreciate the unique and engaging structure of our programs.

If CMMS feels like a good fit for your child, please complete an Application for Admission and return it with a $50 non-refundable deposit. Re-enrollment for returning students is completed by the end of March. Enrollment for new students is confirmed by late spring. Our priorities for enrollment are based on: returning students, siblings of former students, previous Montessori committment/background, and grade-level and gender balance.


Tuition can be paid annually, biannually or monthly, and includes the supply fee, Spanish, art, music, and physical education costs. As part of the micro-economy curriculum, all students fundraise during the year to contribute to their class trips.

2021-22 Tuition: $8,900.00
