After you have toured our school, we welcome you to apply for your child(ren) to be considered for admission.We are always accepting applications. Once you have completed the application, please return with the fee via email, mail or drop off. To pay your application fee online click here. Once your application with payment is received and reviewed by our Director of Admissions and Head of School, you will be notified and updated regarding your place in the admissions process. Applicants will then be placed in the waiting pool or, if a possible placement is determined, be contacted for an evaluation and interview with our Head of School. When a possible placement is determined, the Director of Admissions will contact you to arrange a student evaluation and parent interview with our Head of School. It is important both custodial parents attend the interview when possible. Children are placed according to the needs of the individual classroom communities. We strive for communities that reflect balance and diversity of socioeconomic level, race, ethnicity, age and gender. Criteria for placement is based upon space availability, the child`s age and readiness for the program as well as the parent`s commitment to the Montessori philosophy and school culture. An admission decision letter will be sent to the family within 15 days of the interview/student evaluation date. Since we often receive more applications than openings available, some accepted candidates will be placed in our waiting pool. You may be asked to interview before or after you are placed in the waiting pool. When, and if, an opening occurs, we review all candidates in the waiting pool and offer the space to the child who best complements the classroom community. We strive for communities that reflect balance and diversity of socioeconomic level, race, ethnicity, age and gender.For fall enrollment, we will keep your child`s application until the school opens in August. If an opening for your child has not occurred by September, we will contact you via email to ask if you wish to keep your child`s application in the waiting pool. If you choose not to accept an opening for your child when offered or you do not maintain your child`s application in the waiting pool, and you seek admission for the following school year, it will be necessary to re-apply, and a new, non-refundable application fee will be required. IT IS PART OF OUR MISSION TO PROVIDE FAMILIES WITH AN AUTHENTIC MONTESSORI EDUCATION. WE KEEP THIS MISSION FOREMOST IN MIND WHEN PLACING CHILDREN INTO OUR CLASSROOM COMMUNITIES.
