Enrollment, Tuition & Financial Aid

Enrollment
If you’re interested in joining our community, please read the steps to the Enrollment and Admissions process, then contact us to schedule a Thursday morning observation appointment. These visits are a vital and required part of the application process, providing an opportunity for you to observe the Montessori Method in action and ask any questions you may have about the school, the programs, or Montessori in general. You’ll receive a packet of application forms at the completion of your observation visit.

The steps to our Enrollment and Admissions process may be found here.

Ready to set up an observation? You can reach us by phone at 206.242.5100 or via email at info@threetree.org.
