Book a Chat

We always begin a new family’s Montcrest experience with an in-person meeting. At this time we will be offering individual video meetings (via Zoom) with a member of our admissions team and these can be scheduled through our inquiry page by selecting the “book a chat” option. You may or may not choose to have your child present for this meeting and we leave this decision up to you. Please allow 45 minutes. Once a chat has been booked, we will also share a virtual experience of our campus and the learning that takes place via video and photographic footage.  This can be viewed at your leisure either before or after your chat.

We are also pleased to offer Live Virtual Group Tours (via Zoom)  beginning October 29th at 7 p.m. An Admissions team member will walk you through our campus and answer questions in real time. Group size will be limited to ensure a personalized experience. You can register for these special tours through our inquiry page or by clicking the “inquire/tour” button on the right.

    • Look for red “hotspots” throughout the tour to see videos and to learn more about our school. 

Admissions Process / Virtual Visit

Once a complete application has been submitted, we will be in touch to arrange a Virtual Visit. We are committed to ensuring that Montcrest is the best learning environment for your child and an integral part of this process is our assessment activities. They vary according to the age of the child and are currently all offered online. We select activities that are short but effective in allowing us to get an accurate picture of your child’s learning profile. This is not a testing session – our goal is to ensure that we are the best school for your child and vice versa. We send a video message to your child prior to the visit to introduce our team and share the details of what to expect.
