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 on a rolling basis for the 2017-2018 school year. We have a small number of spaces left to fill.  Please email aborak@mcsri.org to talk to the Head of School, Amy Borak. We welcome all questions and inquiries.

Here is how to apply:

Step 1: Attend our Admissions Open House on November 5th from 10:30am-11:30a

Step 2: Email Amy Borak, aborak@mcsri.org, to set up a visit to observe our classrooms and learn more about the MCS RI.

Step 3: MCS RI Admission Application is due on February 2, 2018.  

Step 4: Financial assistance application is due on February 2, 2018.

Step 6: March 2017- Admissions Decisions and FA awards are given to families. 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 month. 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 have families from all income brackets as part of our community, creating a socioeconomically diverse school. 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. Please let us know if you are in need of one of these spots. Click here to learn more about financial aid at MCS RI.
