Sussex School accepts applications for kindergarten-ready four-year-olds through eighth graders on a rolling basis, as space allows. Known as the best education in Missoula, MT, Sussex provides a flexible learning environment where children are expected to work collaboratively and independently, and meet academic challenges. Students must also demonstrate kindness, inclusion, and acceptance of peers. Therefore, we believe it is in our community's best interest to accept only those students for whom we can make a reasonable prediction of success in our unique, progressive education program.
Sussex School seeks a diverse population and does not discriminate against applicants based on race, creed, color, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. We are committed to making our school affordable for families by offering robust tuition assistance and scholarship opportunities.
If the prospective student will be entering 5th-8th grade, a most recent report card is also required to be considered for admission. If the prospective student will be entering Kindergarten, we recommend that the student has turned five by Sept. 10. If your child's birthday is on the cusp and they seem ready to enter Kindergarten as a four-year-old, please explain in your application.
Please note: The application does not have a save option; we recommend keeping the application form open in your browser tab until you submit it so that you do not lose work.
