Application Process: Middle School & Upper SchoolWhen you’ve decided Hershey Montessori is the right fit for your child and your family, we have a simple admissions process.
1How to Apply
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. The following steps will guide you through the application process. The priority deadline for completed applications with records, visits, and interviews is Friday, January 29, 2021. You will receive an decision letter no later than February 28, 2021. Students whose are applications received after the January 31 deadline will be reviewed on a rolling basis as space allows. We encourage you to complete the process as early as possible.
Step 1: Attend a Visitors’ Day Program or Schedule an Individual Visit
We encourage all applicants and their families to visit the Huntsburg campus for a tour and information session. A visit will allow you to observe students actively engaged in the classrooms, see our facility, and have questions answered about our adolescent program. Please register here.
Step 2: Submit application, supporting materials, & application fee ($75 for domestic applicants; $125 for international applicants)
Begin the application process through the Admissions Portal. All forms from all parties should be emailed to or mailed directly to:
Hershey Montessori School

In additional to the application completed via the admissions portal, students should complete the following:
- Parent/Guardian Recommendation (we request that both parents, if possible, complete independent recommendations)

*Please supply these persons with an stamped envelope addressed to Admissions
Step 3: Complete financial aid application (if applicable) by February 5, 2021
Hershey Montessori School offers tuition assistance to families based on need. A completed School and Student Services (SSS) Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) must be submitted to determine the level of assistance for which a family qualifies. Access to SSS forms at SSS Online will become active on October 1, 2020.
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 2021). Visit SSS Online for more information.

Visit Hershey Montessori School’s financial aid website to find additional information on how to apply.
Step 4: Interviews & Shadow Visits
A personal interview and shadow is an essential aspect of Hershey’s admissions application process. During the shadow visit, students will have the opportunity to attend classes and share information about their current school, academic and extra-curricular interests, and their desire to attend Hershey Montessori School. Parents and guardians will have the chance to meet with a member of the admissions team.
International students or other applicants who are unable to make it to campus, a member of the admissions team will coordinate a “Skype” interview.
Step 5: Receive your application decision
Applications, students visits, and interviews completed by January 31 will receive decisions no later than February 28, 2021. Applications, student visits, and interviews completed after January 31 will receive their decision letters 14 business days after the application, student visit and interview is complete.
