Thank you for your interest in admission to NewGate School.

Discover what makes NewGate School a premier Montessori IB school for students 12 months to 18 years old. Take a tour of our campus, learn about the programs that fit your needs, and enjoy getting to know our community.


The Admissions Process:

Each new application to NewGate is carefully considered to find the best match between student, family, and school.

The First Step

The admissions process begins with a request to tour and visit with our Head of School or a school representative. The tour highlights our programs, Montessori principles and practices, and addresses your questions. 

Campus Tours

We look forward to seeing you at one of our weekly tours. Sign-up by clicking the button below.

Should I Bring My Child?

Choosing the right school is a family decision. Bringing young children along when you first visit a school can confuse them and distract you. During a tour, you will want to focus on the school’s attributes what makes it special, and ask questions. Older students appreciate being involved in the process from the start. Partnership relationships take time. All students are invited to spend time at the school later in the admissions process.

Ambassador Parents

Our families love NewGate and are happy to share their experience with you. Some families have High School age children who have been at NewGate since they were toddlers, other families have transferred to NewGate for various reasons at different stages of development, and all are happy to answer any questions you may have. A list of contact information is available upon request.

Initial Conversations

In addition to attending Open House, many families will arrange one or more individual meetings with our staff to discuss the school and their children. Our goal is to help every prospective family make the best decision possible about their children’s long-term education before they apply.

Observing a Class at Work

Montessori classes, especially infants through middle school, are quite different from the traditionally structured classrooms experienced by many of us. We encourage interested parents to spend an hour or longer silently observing a class at work.
