ADMISSIONS

ADMISSIONS

Admissions to the school are based on:

  1. Re-enrollment of current students
  2. Siblings of current students
  3. Transfers from other Montessori schools
  4. New Students
  5. Transfers into the elementary class must provide records from their previous school

Interviews for new children are arranged in the spring. A tuition deposit is due within 10 days of being notified of acceptance in the school. This deposit confirms your child’s place and is non-refundable after June 1st.

 

If there are factors which would result in a child not being accepted, these will be communicated to the parent. Our staff is not trained to deal with severe learning or emotional disorders. We can provide individualized instruction to meet the developmental needs of most children.

 

All new enrollments are provisional, subject to the student’s reaction to the program during the first month.

 

When your child becomes a part of our program we will expect your support and hope that you will find ways to help us do our job better.

 

We look forward to serving you and your child!

 

The Montessori School of Alexandria is affiliated with the American Montessori Society and licensed by the Departments of Social Services of the State of Virginia. The facility is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations relating to health, fire and building codes.

 

The firm policy of this school is to welcome diversity in both the student body and staff. We enroll students and hire staff without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
