Thank you for your interest in touring Chesapeake Montessori School to learn more about the authentic AMI programs that we offer. There are several ways to visit our school for the first time:

  • Group tours for Young Child Community, Primary, and Elementary applicants, are designed as an introduction to Montessori pedagogy and to life at Chesapeake Montessori School. These two hour tours begin with a discussion of the developmental model of education, continue with a tour of the full continuum of education levels that we offer, and conclude with a brief Q&A session.

    CMS Group Tours are for adults only. At least one parent is required to attend a Tour or an Open House prior to submission of an application. Group Tours will resume in Fall 2019 – please visit this page in September to register for a tour. 

  • Open Houses include an introduction to the Montessori developmental program, a tour of our classrooms and grounds, and an opportunity to meet our Head of School, teachers, parents, and board members. Open Houses are for the whole family. At least one parent is required to attend a Tour or an Open House prior to submission of an application. Open Houses are planned for October of 2019 and January and March of 2020. Please visit this page in September 2019 to register to attend an Open House. 

  • Adolescent Program (AP) Group Tours are for parents of AP applicants. Parents will meet the Director of the Adolescent Program to learn how our program differs from others. These one and one half hour tours begin with an introduction to the program, continue with a Q&A session with current students, and conclude with a tour of the AP campus, which is just a few miles north on Ritchie Highway of our main campus. Please email admissions@chesapeake-montessori.com to register for a tour. AP Group Tours will resume in October 2019.
