You’ve researched and visited, talked with friends and family, and have finally narrowed your search. We are honored you have chosen to apply to Ruffing Montessori School for your child.

Admissions Calendar for the 2024-2025 School Year

January 30, 2024: Application deadline with decisions communicated by February 13, 2024.

January 31, 2024: Rolling admissions period begins, which means that applications will be considered only as space allows. We anticipate being fully enrolled (resulting in a waitlist situation) for most of our levels / grades. For questions about space availability and timing, please contact Julie Haffke, Director of Admissions & Enrollment Management.

Toddler Community Applicants: Ruffing has been fortunate to experience robust interest in our Toddler Community program (for children ages 18 – 36 months), and we are in a waitlist situation for the 2024-2025 school year.

Toddler Community applications are considered in date order, based on the date we receive them, and at this time, we have more applications than spaces available for the Fall of 2024. When spaces become available, Ruffing will pull from the applicant waitlist, so we encourage families to call or email our Admissions Office if at all interested. We remain grateful for your interest and welcome your questions about our process and availability.
