Application Process: Children's House CommunityWhen you’ve decided Hershey Montessori is the right fit for your child and your family, we have a simple admissions process.
Step 1: Attend a Morning of Observation or Open House
Parents are encouraged attend an adult-only Open House and/or schedule an adult-only campus tour and Children’s House Community classroom observation. A visit will give you the opportunity to observe children actively engaged in the Montessori environments, see our facility, and have questions answered about our program. Please register here.
Step 2: Submit application, supporting materials, & application fee ($75)
Complete your child’s application through the Admissions Portal. A nonrefundable $75 application fee is paid when you submit your online application. If applicable, download the record release form. The record release form should be given directly to your child’s current school. It authorizes his current school to send us your child’s records, which are necessary to complete the application process.
Step 3: Complete financial aid application (if applicable) by February 7, 2020
Hershey Montessori School offers tuition assistance to families based on need. To determine the level of assistance for which a family qualifies (if applicable), a completed School and Student Services (SSS) Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) must be submitted. Access to SSS forms at SSS Online will become active on October 2, 2019 and must be completed by February 7, which is also the application submission deadline.
SSS requires a non-refundable fee of $51. If you are unable to access this form online, please call the Admissions to receive a hard copy. Please upload or mail the following documents directly to SSS Online: 2018 Federal Tax Forms and 2019 W‐2 or substitute wage document (when received in January 2020). Visit SSS Online for more information.
Step 4: Complete your parent interview and bring your child in for their classroom visit
