2024-2025 OPEN HOUSES

Twice a year, the Montessori School of Syracuse holds an Admissions Open House for families interested in learning more about our school.  The Open House is a drop-in event, from 2 – 4 PM on a Sunday afternoon. The next Open House is in the Fall of 2024.

The decision about where to send your child for school is an important one, and we want to help you determine if Montessori is the place for your preschool or elementary-aged child.

I invite you to get to know us better — first by viewing or requesting an Admissions packet, and then by scheduling a Classroom Observation visit. You can read more about the different steps of the admissions process below. Meanwhile, I look forward to meeting you and telling you about our wonderful school!

Director of Admissions
I feel lucky that my mom valued my education enough to send me to MSS and i would recommend it to any parents.

Five Simple Steps:

Take a look at our Admissions Brochure and understand the benefits of a Montessori School of Syracuse education.

Learn more about our programs and tuition costs.


Connect with the Director of Admissions by filling out an inquiry form. Once we receive this electronic form, we will send you an Admissions Packet and a link to our application.  You can also use this form to ask specific questions that you may have about our programs.

We offer enrollment to families based upon the date their application is submitted, and there is no application fee.

Once we have received your application, the Director of Admissions will reach out to schedule a Classroom Observation visit.

Students work with teacher on a geography work in the primary classroom.

After the classroom observation, the final step in the Admissions process is a visit with your child which will be scheduled in the spring.
