How to Apply:

Application Process

Pioneer Montessori School has a rolling admission policy, which means that we accept applications for admissions throughout the year. Applications are accepted for in-coming students, ages 18 months through 12 years, throughout the school year and during the summer months. Because of the numerous applications Pioneer Montessori School receives, there may be a waiting list for admitting students. Applications are available in the school Administrative Office or electronically via the link below.  A $50.00 processing fee is also due upon submission.

Once completed, please send to or mail it to PO Box 1809, Ketchum, ID  83340. For questions, more information, or to schedule a tour of our campus, please call (208) 726-9060. Thanks so much for your interest in Pioneer Montessori School.


In the event that one of our classrooms are full, applicants will be placed on a waitlist. Except for our sibling applicants, who will be given priority, the waitlist will be arranged according to the date in which your Application for Admission is submitted to the Administrative Offices. Students will be moved off the waitlist as space becomes available.

Please be aware that in the case of our PrePrimary classroom it may not be possible to give exact dates as to when an opening will occur. The most common availabilities in this classroom occur when a current student moves on to the Primary classroom, and due to the ages of the PrePrimary students, their readiness to move up to the next classroom can happen quickly. As soon as this occurs, we will notify the first applicant on the waitlist of the opening. If a family is not ready at that time, the availability will be forfeited to the next applicant on the waitlist and that family can retain their spot at the top of the waitlist.
