Admissions Process

Wilmington Montessori School offers rolling admissions throughout the academic year. Applications are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis for programs with current openings.

Juno Gym Floor

Application materials for next school year must be submitted by January 24 for first-round decisions. We will continue to accept and review applications that are received after January 24, provided spaces are still available in the requested program.

We recommend that families begin the admissions process as early in the fall as possible before the year of planned enrollment. Once classrooms are full, students will be placed on a waiting list and notified if a space becomes available.

Current (2019-20) Waiting Lists:
There are limited openings in our Lower Elementary Program (grades 1-3). Our first grade is filled to capacity for the 2019-20 school year. Apply for the 2020-21 school year today!

In addition, the Toddler Program (12-36 months) is full. We are currently accepting applicants for our 2019-20 waiting list, as well as for the 2020-21 school year.

For more information and to be added to our waiting list, contact admissions@wmsde.org.
