Admission Process & Calendar

Thacher’s admissions process is your first step in determining if we are a good match for your family
. The following steps will facilitate an understanding of Thacher and its commitment to the Montessori system of education. Complete our online Inquiry Form to start your Thacher journey.

A required part of our application process is a meeting with Admissions Specialist Angela Sicuranza, for a tour with classroom observations. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the Montessori philosophy and the educational process at Thacher.

Private appointments are accepted at 9:00 or 10:00 a.m., October 15 through February 8.

Please contact our Admissions Department to schedule your tour
