Welcome to Hilltop Montessori School. Every year we look forward to the prospect of new families joining Hilltop Montessori School as the school comes to life through our students, staff, and families. We believe, in choosing Hilltop and a Montessori education, students are provided with the critical thinking and problem-solving skills, confidence, and self-awareness essential for success in our rapidly changing world.

Our Admissions office is open by phone or email. We may be reached by email at [email protected], or you may call the Admission Office at 802.257.0500 ext 101, and we can talk directly. We look forward to responding and answering your questions.

Whether exploring your child’s first step into school or thinking about new options for an older student, we invite you to explore the information here on our website, call the admissions office for more information, and join us for a Prospective Parent Visiting Day. The admissions process is designed to give you and your child every opportunity to experience our school and come to know what this education looks, and feels like. We look forward to getting to know you and your family.
