Application Process

Thank you for your interest in Montessori Community School of RI. We welcome you to visit our school and look forward to discussing the possibility of your child's early education here at MCS RI.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please email for more information and to schedule a tour! We welcome all questions and inquiries.

Here is how to apply:

Step 1: Email, to set up a visit to observe our classrooms, meet with Amy Borak, Head of School, and learn more about the MCS RI.

Step 2: Complete the MCS RI Admission Application and other forms.

Step 3: If you choose to apply for financial aid, complete the Financial assistance application 

Step 4: The admissions committee reviews each application and application process thoughtfully. Each applicant will receive one of three responses: a letter of acceptance, a letter that your child was placed in the waiting pool, or a letter of denial. If your application is accepted, you will need to send back the Enrollment Agreement and enrollment fee within 1 week. The Head of School will be in touch with waiting pool families to keep those families updated of their admissions status. If acceptance was denied, the admissions committee determined that MCS RI was not the best match. 

The mission at MCS RI is to make Montessori education accessible, regardless of family income. We believe that all children benefit from being part of a socio-economically diverse community. We prioritize a certain number of spaces for families in need of financial assistance and for families who qualify for the state DHS child care subsidy.
