Admissions

Every student should have the opportunity to pursue their passions

Enrolment for 2021-22 & Beyond

We are currently accepting applications for admission into all of our Early Years (3 year olds) through to Grade 12 programs. We are only providing tours by bookings. Please use the link below to book an appointment.


Step 1 – Tour

If it is at all possible, we encourage any interested families to come and visit our campus. Westmont has tours available every Thursday morning, during the school year, to see our programs in action. No tours are available July and August.

Step 2 – Apply

Please complete an Application form.
This can be dropped of at the school with the Application Fee.

Please submit any supporting documents as required, i.e. report cards, diagnostic testing, occupational therapy reports, etc.

Step 3 – Student Visit

Westmont does require that all students have a mandatory visit so that teachers can get to know your child. This visit is a half day for Early Primary and two days for Elementary/Middle School.

Step 4 – Enrolment

Enrolment may happen after the student visit. Successful enrolment depends upon available spaces, suitability for the program, and the ability to meet any special learning needs a student may have.

 
 

Dr. Montessori believed that children learned best by doing, not by passively accepting the ideas and pre-existing knowledge of others.

Westmont School is a school that is committed to academic excellence and a caring learning environment. Westmont and its Board of Directors, The Western Communities Montessori Society (WCMS), recognizes that in order to offer a program based on these standards of excellence and to create the environment that maximizes the potential of its students, investment in the appropriate facilities and equipment is required.

In September 1998, the WCMS Board located, purchased and moved Westmont School to its current wonderful site in Metchosin. In order to provide the necessary capital for this investment, the refundable Student Bond Program was established. (The Student Bond was replaced by the “Family Bond” in April 2009.) The ongoing purpose of the bond program is to support the capital plan used to fund the long term capital needs of the School.

Youngest child Full fees

Subsequent Siblings 30% reduction of tuition fees

Withdrawals

The withdrawal of a student at any time after enrolment or re-enrolment reduces the school’s revenue, but not its’ operating costs. It may also affect decisions and commitments regarding staffing and class configurations that have already been made.

Therefore, once a student is enrolled or re-enrolled at Westmont Montessori, the parents/guardians are expected to make a financial commitment for the full year. However, there are sometimes serious, unforeseen circumstances that cause a parent/guardian to permanently withdraw a student. Westmont will work with families in these circumstances.
