Tour the Montessori School
The first step in the TMS admission process is a tour of the campus. Our program is unique, and we want you to see it first hand. School tours are conducted every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. and last for approximately an hour and a half. The tours are parent only. Please call 423-622-6366 option 3 to schedule a tour.
After your tour, please turn in your application. There is a non-refundable $60.00 application fee. No child is able to be considered for admission until we have a completed application on file with the application fee. Pay Application Fee
After we have received your application, we will contact you to schedule an observation of our program in action. An observation will provide you with the best view of how the classrooms work and how our teachers interact with the children. This observation is for parents only. Perspective students will have an opportunity to visit the classroom later on in the admissions process.
After your observation, a Parent Interview with the Head of School and then a New Child Visit will be scheduled. The Parent Interview will last approximately 30-45 minutes and is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the operations, procedures, and expectations of The Montessori School.
The New Child Visit is approximately 30 minutes for toddlers and preschoolers. Elementary students will have a chance to experience the morning routine from 8:30 am to 12 pm.
Congratulations! You have completed the admissions process. All fees, deposits and completed forms, including an up-to-date medical record, must be in the office before a child can begin his/her first day of school.
We enroll students from our waiting list throughout the year as space is available. Call for more information.
