Applying to KMS

We hope that our comprehensive website will answer many of your initial questions regarding KMS. We encourage you to call us at (978)251-2929 to speak with someone directly about setting up an admission interview and tour.

Visit the school with your child for a family interview.

The first step in the admissions process is to visit the school with your child for a family interview and information session. This is a great opportunity for you to sit with the Director of Admissions and have all your questions answered. At this time your child will enjoy working with a sampling of the Montessori materials. You will then have a tour of our school where you will observe our beautiful classrooms in action.

Submit an application

To begin the formal enrollment process, please complete a student application and return it to Keystone with a $50.00 non-refundable application fee.

Schedule a time to observe in the classroom (Optional)

Parents only. After your application has been received, we will notify you. If you feel like you would like to observe in one of our classrooms, we welcome you to do so. Classroom observations usually last about 30-45 minutes and we ask that you do not bring your child. Observing in a classroom is not a mandatory part of the admissions process, but many feel it helps aid in their understanding of the Montessori method and the classroom dynamics.

Admission decision

Keystone does not guarantee admissions to all applicants. Our admissions and interview process aids us in understanding your needs and the individual needs of your child. Through the interview process we have the opportunity to interact with your child, observe how she/he approaches the materials and manipulates them, how they respond to direction and redirection, and determine if there is potential for success in our Montessori environment. The admissions team meets weekly and if we can offer your child enrollment, you will receive and Enrollment Packet which will include the tuition agreement/contract.

If we cannot offer your child enrollment, you will receive a letter notifying you that we cannot accommodate your child in our program.
