Admissions

The Admissions Office at LMS works closely with current LMS parents helping to promote the school to prospective families. Admission volunteers run admission events, reach out to prospective families, and tour interested parents and their children. 

The success of Admission events depends on parent volunteers. Helping make these events happen is a great way to establish connections with other parents and the community.

If interested in volunteering for Admission events, please contact Aimee Randall, Director of Enrollment and Financial Aid, at arandall@lexmontessori.org or Kim McDonald at kmcdonald@lexmontessori.org).
