Lupine Montessori Admissions

As parents, we know it is quite a challenge to select the right school for your child. We hope we can be of service to you.

Lupine Montessori School begins the admission process by inviting parents and families to tour the school while classes are in session or during a special weekend open house. We encourage families to see the classrooms while the children are working with the Montessori materials, ask questions, and get to know the school first-hand.

We are currently enrolling for the 2018/19 academic year. Applications for immediate enrollments are being considered upon individual review, if any openings become available.

Your inquiries and visits at this time are most welcomed.

Admissions Process

1. Visit Lupine

Call the school or schedule an appointment online to visit the school.

See the classrooms while the children are working and get to know Lupine in person.

2. Apply Online

Complete the online application form and submit a $50 non-refundable application fee.

The application fee is one-time only, per family.

Pay the $50 application fee online.

Or mail a check to:
Lupine Montessori School
936 N State Street
Lockport, IL 60441

3. Admission Decision

Following notification of your admission decision, a 10% deposit and signed enrollment contract confirm acceptance of placement in the program.

No student is considered enrolled until the deposit, contracts and any required records are received.

In addition to the application form, please review the Illinois 2016-2017 Health Requirements document and complete applicable forms by August 28th.


As stewards of the earth, we carefully consider our necessities.

School supply lists are minimal as we only ask for what we need. Throughout the year, Lupine families will be asked to provide organic snacks, supplies and assist with laundry. This is an important practice in grace and courtesy. Children delight in their responsibility and take pride in offering help to their community.
