To apply for admissions you must:

  • Complete an application
  • Submit 3 letters of recommendation
  • Write a 350 word typewritten personal statement explaining your interest in Montessori education
  • Submit official transcripts from your most recent educational institution

After the application paperwork is completed, a personal interview will be scheduled. This helps the director to assess candidate’s suitability for the training course and the eventual classroom performance.

Of critical importance to the Admissions Committee is the candidate has a clear understanding of the commitment to both a full year of study and the financial implications. Tuition for 2015-2016 is $6,000.00. This includes required reading books. An additional $500-$800 will likely be spent by the student on supplies during the year.

Upon successful completion of all academic and practicum requirements, the student will be issued an AMS Early Childhood Credential or Associate Credential as is appropriate.

Admission is open to students without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
