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.

Enrollment for the upcoming school year begins in January. Applications for immediate placement are considered on an individual basis.

Your inquiries and visits at this time are most welcomed.

Admissions Process

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.

Complete the online application form and submit a $75 non-refundable application fee.

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

Pay application fee online

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

Following notification of your admission decision, a 10% non-refundable 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.


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.
