VISITING OUR CAMPUS IS THE FIRST STEP IN THE ADMISSIONS PROCESS.

Can I come for a tour of the school during COVID?

Currently, we are unable to have in-person visits. However, in addition to reading through our website, we want to hear from you, so do call and we would be happy to talk by phone or set up virtual meeting as part of the admissions process.  

You can reach Zoe Proctor, in the Admissions Office, at 802-257-0500 ext 102, or at [email protected]

You can also find a more in-depth description of the programs and the curriculum here

Schedule a Tuesday Tour and Observation *When a Campus Visit can be in-person

We invite you to come visit, see our campus and classrooms, meet the faculty and staff, and get a feel for our school. Whether you schedule a tour and visit on a Tuesday morning, attend an Open House, or one of our Parent Education events, we hope you will get a feel for what makes our school unique and learn more about the Montessori method of teaching and learning.

Parents interested in the school may call to schedule a tour. Visits are scheduled Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. and take roughly an hour. For your first visit it is best to leave your child at home so that you will have ample time to observe, ask questions, meet with the Head of School and the Admissions Director.

Call us at 802.257.0500, ext 102, to schedule a tour and classroom observation. Applications are accepted year round. The best time to view the school is while classes are in session as it offers an important opportunity to observe the teacher-student relationships and the Montessori classroom in action. Choosing the right school is an important decision and the tour is an essential part of this process.

Open House Schedule 

Open House Events are scheduled in December and January. Our Open Houses are both friendly and informative. Tours and classroom observations begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Teachers from every level will also meet with parent groups to discuss and answer their questions. And lastly, and current parents will enjoy this, some of our students will be here to take questions from parents about their experience at Hilltop.

9:00am –  Welcome
9:15 – Tour and observations
10:00 -10:30 –  meet with program director for discussion and Q&A
10:30 – 11:00 wrap up session with representative students, Head of School and Admissions Director

We welcome parents interested in the school, for their toddlers through middle school (students interested in middle school may also attend the open house). Because tours include visits to classrooms in session please do not bring young children to the tours or open house. Students visits are a part of the admissions application.

We maintain a strong applicant pool for all grade levels throughout the year. When a space becomes available, applicants who have completed the admissions process will be considered for that opening. We work to enroll each program with a balanced mix of ages, gender and learning styles. Families are encouraged to apply if they are interested. Applications are accepted throughout the school year.
