The outline below is an overview of the admissions process. Further down the page you will find details of our ADMISSIONS POLICIES and info on TUITION COSTS as well as details around SUITABILITY.
Enrolment for 2019-20 & Beyond
For the first time in several years we are accepting a limited number of Grade 1-3 students as we have opened up a new class. We are also accepting applications for admission into our Grade 4-10 programs.
Currently our Early Primary and Kindergarten programs are full.
For enrolment for the 2020-21 school year and beyond, we encourage families to come for a tour and apply starting in September 2019. Our wait pool for places fills quickly in the pre-school to Grade 3 programs.
Dr. Montessori believed that children learned best by doing, not by passively accepting the ideas and pre-existing knowledge of others.
Westmont fees cover all the costs of our outstanding program with the exception of a nominal fee for school supplies in the fall. If you have more than one child please note that our sibling discounts are the best in the Victoria.
Westmont School strives for complete clarity in our fee structure, and to keep our fees competitive and affordable, and to offer excellent value.

West-Mont School is a school that is committed to academic excellence and a caring learning environment. West-Mont 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 West-Mont 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 on-going purpose of the bond program is to support the capital plan used to fund the long term capital needs of the School.

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 West-Mont 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.
